The sun is out again this morning, after not managing to make an appearance yesterday... it was mostly cloudy for the day with a few spots of rain (and snow higher up) at times.

It's quite a chilly start to the day but it should be sunny all the way through with the temperature rising to a forecast 11 degrees here in town this afternoon.

Back to cloud and possible rain tomorrow and Saturday with Sunday currently forecast to be clearer once again.

This weekend is the last for Kandatsu Kogen and also for Maiko Snow Resort (which is closed during the week at the moment).
