Woke up to a light fall of wet snow at the base of Tenjin but up top it was 20cm of light dry pow so quite a pleasant surprise.

Winds are light at the base but moderate up top. The higher elevations are likely to be the only beneficiary at Hodaigi but the snow cover there is still great. Okutone is looking fine up top but rather grim at the base unfortunately.

The forecast at Tenjin is for snow through Friday morning and things look set to be colder Wed and Thurs with the biggest snowfalls expected on Wednesday night and right through Thursday. As I look out the window at noon on the 3rd, the snowfall is moderate to heavy and this storm looks like it has legs.
