Those blue skies that started yesterday morning didn't last for long, with snow falling for much of the day - some clearings of clouds at times, but usually short-lived. Not much cm from it though, and about 5cm of fresh snow outside from overnight.

The sun is out again this morning as I write this, with a mix of blue skies to the north and some thin cloud in places. Nice and bright. Difficult to read what will happen during the day today with a few different forecasts. Take your pick from sunny or cloudy with some snow showers at times!

One thing that does seem certain is that today will be warmer with a high of around +5C forecast this afternoon. It wasn't that cold last night and now it's hovering around 0C.

It's also National Foundation Day in Japan which is a national holiday so it'll be interesting to see how many folk come visiting for this mid week day off. Expect places to be busier than on a normal weekend.

Heavy snowfall once again expected on Friday and Saturday.
