Morning from Nozawa on this traditional day of sponge cakes and Kentucky Fried Chicken. Santa-san, after enjoying the fresh snow on the mountain yesterday, is off busy doing his job proper today delivering presents.

It's a chilly morning here though set to mild-up a bit duing the day and while there's lots of cloud around as I am sat here writing this report before 8am, forecasts point to clearer conditions and the sun shining down so we might get that later.

Snow clouds are due back over Nozawa though tonight and it's looking like snow should be falling on Christmas Day this year.
