Decent fall down low overnight and it's a snowfall without wind which is quite nice. 33cm at the base of Tenjin this morning but after clearing it all off, temps have hovered just above zero.

Despite it snowing all day, there's no real additional accumulation thus far.

That should change tonight as temps drop, provided the snow keeps coming. Tomorrow night still looking like a solid amount of snow on the way...
