Cloudy this morning and a light wind. The fairly calm before the coming storm?

If forecasts are to be believed, from tonight it's heavy snow and very strong winds in the region - and there's every chance that the strong winds will affect lifts on the mountain. Obviously I can't say what conditions are going to be before it happens but from the forecasts as they are now, tomorrow might be one to avoid/change if you have that choice. I would certainly advise checking weather forecasts late today and very early tomorrow before making any trip just to be sure. Don't want to make the journey and arrive to a closed mountain, however good the onsen are.

Anyway, Sunday is currently forecast to be less wild though moderate to strong winds may prevail.
