It's getting difficult to know what to write in the reports at the moment... I was hoping that it would be colder and snowing by the time I get to write this, but not yet. We are still expecting 'heavy snow' today along with some stronger winds, but for the moment it's keeping on the mild side. It's cloudy with light spots of rain for now. Kagura reporting a dusting of snow so hopefully higher up it will be snowing.

The upcoming snowfall is expected to ease tomorrow morning.

Going to leave it at that for today in the hope that once I post this the snow clouds will come rolling in!
