Rained here yesterday from around noon, and not just a little either, the snow around my place really took a beating. Fortunately it started snowing around 3pm and has continued since.

Overall accumulation down here is pretty minimal as there has been plenty of wind but seems that Tenjin faired much better up high. Their base is up on a net level since the significant snowfall we got last weekend. 50cm base up top now and snow all the way down to 600m. It's not even mid-December so things are looking pretty good.

Minakami town forecast is for clear weather this afternoon and the mountain forecast is saying the same but I'm taking the mountain forecast with a grain of salt as the weather certainly seems socked in right now. Snow is forecast again this evening.
