Rain just started falling here at the base of Mt Tanigawa. Why do the forecasters always manage to nail down the rain event a week in advance?

Anyway, cloudy up here, a look South down the valley looks like they're having better weather down there.

Once the rain does move on we have snow showers or light snow expected for Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
