It's a warm morning for Shiga Kogen in December. Temperatures above zero and climbing as high as around 4 degrees! Quite high for here for this time of year of course.

Rain is forecast for many regions today including our own but high up here we might be lucky to escape that - or at least not have to put up with it for long - with snow here. For now, it's just cloudy skies all round.

And we are still looking forward to those mid-winter conditions over the weekend that should be bringing snow.
