Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

Snow! Sit back down... just a dusting! But much better than the rain that we got during the day yesterday. That turned into snow and left us with that dusting. The sun is out now and it has been a fine and clear and sunny day, warming up again.

The mild conditions will continue over the next few days and unfortunately there's a high probability of rain over the weekend though Saturday morning we may just escape it.

After that, colder weather is once again forecast early next week and even the chance of snowfall. That would be just the ticket!

The Shiga Kogen Now reports will continue being updated until the end of the season - we will try to post a few new reports each week.
