Warm weather and lack of snow has been the culprit of late with lower elevations getting hammered.

Around my place there's bleak patches of snow in the shade but it really feels bare. Tenjin has been going okay up top, temps here at 650m have been topping out at 8C in the middle of the day but up top at 1300m it should've maxed at 3C. The base is still there at 40cm and that's a legit number, it's a proper snow base and I'd consider it at this point to be the only show in town.

Anyway, to the positives, moderate snow is forecast tonight at Tenjin and over at Hodaigi. That's expected to ease off Monday but continue through Tuesday along with cooler temps. Wednesday is forecast to be clear after which more snow is expected.
