The sun didn't appear yesterday, or not as far as I can remember seeing it, and it ended up just being a cloudy and overcast kind of day. This morning in town it is just cloudy but light snow is apparently falling higher up on the mountains with Naeba, Gala Yuzawa, Yuzawa Kogen amongst others saying that snow is coming down. Very light though - not the kind that will give us lots of new cm. The latest local forecasts seem to be calling for the day is a mix of cloud/rain/sleet for town and hopefully snowfall on the mountains later on with a high of around 3 degrees today which is a bit down from what we have had the last few days. But it's one of those times where it's border line - could be raining lower down while snowing up top. We're just going to have to wait and see how the day pans out. If we are lucky we might get some snowfall later today and overnight giving us a nice surprise for tomorrow morning. Really hard to call.

What does seem very likely is for temps to start dropping lower than they are right now later in the weekend and early in the week.

7pm update

After a bit of a miserable day with rain falling in town, I'm glad to report that snow is now falling and the local Niigata forecast tells us to expect perhaps around 10cm of snow overnight and perhaps continuing in the morning. I'll bring you the news tomorrow.
