Some sunshine early this morning and thin cloud in Shiga Kogen and just a dusting of snow to be seen in places.

It is another very cold morning here with lots of crisp frosty sounds as the steady stream of cars arriving go past my window.

Snow is forecast for today though later on and it might start off as light snow but tomorrow heavier snow is expected. There's a chance of quite strong winds as well. Snow probably through to Monday, with clearer skies currently forecast on Tuesday and Wednesday. If that happens they should be great days to be here.

Let's see what we get over the next few days.

Lots of people arriving at the moment so I expect it will be a pretty busy weekend here.
