Some snow falling yesterday at times but it was generally rather wet - here in town anyway - and not adding up to much. Just a dusting outside here this morning.

This morning this is what resorts are reporting:

Kagura: 3-5cm
Maiko Snow Resort: 5cm

So you can probably expect between 0cm and 5cm of fresh out there this morning.

When I first got up it was snowing lightly. Right now it is snowing very lightly indeed and probably about to stop. There are a few small patches of blue sky to be seen at times behind the clouds and we're expecting lots more of that... sunny clear skies are forecast for today.

And for tomorrow too, probably from the start of the day.

So nice weather conditions, let's hope it keeps fairly cold.

Next decent snowfall? Probably late Thursday into Friday (but best to be prepared for some rain before it turns into snow).
