Cold snap! Yes, temperatures have dropped these last few days and it's feeling much more winter like. Yesterday saw white cover the top parts of Kagura down to below the top gondola station.

It was raining down in town pretty much all of yesterday and also last night - very heavy at times - but this morning the clouds have eased off a bit and we can see that the snow line has crept further down the mountains. Yuzawa Kogen and the top third of Ishiuchi Maruyama, for example, this morning have a thin sheet of white.

A high of around 6 degrees is forecast for today (it's about 4 as of 8:30am) with rainy conditions on and off.

Conditions will likely get milder from tomorrow into the weekend. Heavy rain is forecast for Saturday, but Sunday is looking promising for more snowfall on the mountains coupled with the coldest conditions yet - though currently not looking like it will get down to town level.
