Light snow was falling earlier on and just a few cm of fresh on the ground for my report today.

Right now though it has stopped and it is generally cloudy but I can even see a bit of blue sky over towards Ichinose. Might it clear up for the day...?

It is cold still this morning but warmer temperatures ahoy on Thursday, hopefully a blip with things getting more suitably cold from Friday.

More snowfall is still due on the forecast from late Friday and over the weekend too so it should be back to normal.
