This morning it's windy and raining unfortunately. Not the nicest of mornings, that's for sure.

While I am hearing that it is actually snowing higher up at upper elevations, I can imagine it'll be wet. And it would seem likely that top lifts will be affected by the weather conditions this morning - check with them for the latest.

This shouldn't be lasting long though with sunny skies due back over the weekend.

Looks like colder temperatures will be with us early in the week might be interesting to see what they bring with them.

Just taking a look back at the numbers for March. I observed 139cm of snow here at base (compared with 113cm the previous season). That brings the total season observed snowfall number up to 1141cm (compared with 1163cm last season).

The JMA numbers for Kutchan town saw 141cm compared with 118cm last season.

Looks like this season in total is going to end up being pretty similar to last.

To see how the monthly numbers stack up check out the table lower down on this page.
