Yuck and gah, at least at town level

It's raining in Furano Town and was 3C when I crossed the Sorachi River our of Kitanomine just before 9am.

The mountain is shrouded in cloud at the top so there is a slim chance it's snow flurries up there, but the smart money would be on rain. Drizzle if you want to get specific. Cold, wet, soul sapping drizzle, if you want to get dramatic.

Light breeze today. Visibility not an issue but through rain drops. Up in the clouds at the top of the resort visibility would be poor to fair.

At this stage, the forecast is for four days of snowy afternoons starting tomorrow and this rain is currently forecast to stop around 6pm.

But as ever, it's the weather. So we shall see.
