It was just cloudy earlier but it's snowing now and this is probably the start of what we can expect in the next 48 hours... which is heavy snow and very strong winds. It's going to be stormy out there if the forecasts are right. Enough to probably mess around with ski lifts, but probably enough for most people to not want to be venturing out into it anyway.

Relatively mild for here this morning but due to get colder and colder as the day moves on.

At the bottom of the report I have added all of the night skiing plans for each of the resort areas in Shiga Kogen for this season. I'll keep that on the report each day for reference.
