So here we are. May 2014. Though I must admit, personally I feel this 'spring' bit of the season goes on for quite a while. I suppose you get that reporting on it every day.

Lots of cloud this morning so it's generally quite grey. There's a chance of some rainfall today.

As I have done each month, lets take a look at the snow numbers for April. I observed just 13cm of snow for the month here; JMA numbers from Kutchan actually beating that at 24cm (which is pretty much about the same as for the previous 5 seasons).

That took my observations for the season so far to 1163cm... not quite as exiting as last seasons observed 1583cm for the whole season, but still... a fair amount of snow! (And remember, that's at base - there's more up there on those mountains).

I'll do a final round up of that kind of thing at the end of the season.
