Last night was clear right through till early this morning when it snowed a little wet white stuff before clearing around 8am.

I'd manned the panic stations as that wasn't part of the forecast but things have since gone back to a weird version of full Winter. Sometimes howling winds, sometimes heavy snowfall, sometimes backing off to light snow and winds. Who knows how this one goes but it's supposed to keep snowing all day and intensify this evening.

Just heard 5kms down the road in Yubiso that there are patches of clear sky and no snow at all.

Temps around zero at the base of Tenjindaira so looking like it could be pretty good for tomorrow and the weekend. Tenjin is currently shut and likely will remain so all day due to strong winds.
