Well, some snow yesterday and while not a huge amount to report a topup is always welcome. We really are doing well though considering it is now April. Snow depths don't seem to have decreased much at all - both the official numbers and observed!

It is a fine and sunny start to the day in Shiga Kogen, as in many other surrounding regions by the looks of things. Bright blue skies and no clouds. Going to be a good one. Mild too.

For the weekend it will probably be colder again and a slight chance of some light snow at times. We'll probably still see the sun at times though, especially on Sunday.
