We are greeted to the morning with a sprinkling of fresh snow in Shiga Kogen. A couple of cm I would say. It's not mad cold but cold enough for it to be snow but it's of the fairly wet variety. But hey, we are right at the end of March! Very light snow falling in some areas now, and in others just dull and cloudy. I would expect the day to end up being a mix of cloud and that light snow falling.

Tomorrow we will be back to real spring weather with temperatures into the positives and sunny clear skies on the forecast.
