The spring-like weather continues this morning, but happily it isn't going to last much longer.

Temperatures are expected to start dropping from tonight and into tomorrow and while we may start the day tomorrow with clear skies, there is a chance of snow later on. What is most promising is the period starting Thursday and going through the coming weekend.

Decent snowfall is forecast along with Shiga Kogen-like winter temperatures as well. So that is definitely something to keep an eye on.

As someone I know here said - great weather for families with young children, though not great if you are seeking powder and deep snow. I'm sure it will be here though... just need to be a bit more patient.
