It didn't freeze at my place overnight, that's never a good sign.

It's also quite warm today and a drive to Hodaigi and back reveals a very distinct lack of snow all over the place.

That said, it was pretty good up high at Mt Tanigawa yesterday and looks like some snow tonight through Monday when it's forecast to clear.

Strong winds are expected tomorrow but the forecasters got this wrong last time they predicted a big wind event. Looks like a solid storm on the menu for Wednesday and Thursday.
