Yesterday was challenging to say the least with poor visibility above 1300m at Tenjin. There was about 10cm of fresh snow around and it snowed till about 1pm but at the base it was light rain.

Last night saw the rain come in properly and things cleared up this morning at around 10am. It's currently sunny with scattered clouds.

It's forecast to start snowing lightly this evening and throughout tomorrow before big snow is predicted for Friday night through Sunday morning. Would be nice if it comes through large.
