[Originally posted earlier this morning - late appearance due to technical issues]

Lunchtime report today. I was actually kind of hoping that I would be able to report the rain stopping but for the moment I am unable to do that. Yes it has been a very wet day today and just taking a look at the webcams you can see that there's raindrops on the cam there even up at the top Yamabiko course areas.

If some weekdays this season have been very quiet, today is eerily quiet. Can't expect many people to be stoked about venturing out onto late spring conditions in the rain though I suppose - however much of a workout it might be!

Thankfully this rain should finish up by this evening and we'll have improved conditions tomorrow. Perhaps a cloudy start with sun forecast for later. It's going to warm up quite a lot as well especially on Friday and Saturday when it might be getting really toasty.
