Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

It's a calm and generally overcast start to this morning but perhaps that old "calm before the storm" phrase can be used.

I'm loving the look of the weekly forecast at the moment. Go take a look. If the weather happens like that, we're going to be having a very good week!

So yes, hopefully the first of the snow will be on the ground by my report tomorrow morning with more and lighter/drier lined up for the following days.
