Morning from Shiga Kogen and another decent amount of snowfall since my report yesterday. Just over 20cm of it in fact. Nice.

It's very cold too, brrrrrr!

There is a lot of cloud lingering about early this morning, and light snow continuing to fall in places, but it is forecast to clear up during the day today and we might see clearer skies and even some sunshine.

After today, we're forecast some clearer and sunny skies over the weekend before back to snowfall on Monday. Sounds good to me.

It's one of the big weekends of the season as Monday is a holiday. Conditions should be very nice for it too. Hope you can come and enjoy it.
