Good news this morning!

Yesterday it was snowing on and off during the day - clearer skies in places at times. The snow was a bit wet really down in town, but overnight we have more fresh snow on the ground around town. I am measuring 24cm.

And here is what the ski resorts are reporting:

Kagura: 20cm
Kagura Mitsumata: 30cm
Kagura Tashiro: 30cm
Naeba: 20-30cm
Maiko Snow Resort: 30cm

So we can expect around 20-30cm of fresh snow out there on the slopes around town this morning.

Light snow is falling at the moment, and it is expected to get heavier later on with a decent amount of snow due to fall overnight and through tomorrow; possibly with strong winds too.

Big number potential!
