Yesterday's tropical weather has had a significant impact on Furano with snow on the roads and surrounds being melted and washed away with the rain. It looks and feels more like October than December seeing the tar seal of the roads and grass areas exposed around town. The rain really cranked up late afternoon and the last burst finished early this morning. Kitanomine has been hit hard with snow on the lower half of the ski resort being striped away back to grass. This is disappointing and we can only hope for a quick recovery. Although it is still warm that recovery may be about to begin with temperatures forecast to head below zero late morning and stay in the negatives through the rest of the week along with continuous snow.
