Friday morning and it's Valentines day which means... chocolate, of course.

Traditionally in Japan it's the guys that receive chocolate from the ladies (and the reverse a month later on 'White Day'). Today at Nozawa though you should find lots of chocolatey goings on including some 'chocolate fondue service'. Sounds good that, doesn't it? Hikage area, 10:30am. Be there for chocolate fondue.

OK so let's get back to non-chocolatey and many might say much more important issues. We need to talk more about snow, right?

Well, there's none new to report this morning yet but as I said in yesterdays report it would seem that the main even, post chocolate, is going to start later on today. Currently -4 degrees and cloudy.

Depending on the forecasts you read, we could be in for some decent snow tonight and through tomorrow... or some very, very decent snow as a storm hits the wider region as a whole. I'm hoping for the latter. Curiously, it looks like tomorrow is going to be relatively mild with temperatures perhaps even creeping above zero during the day. Hmmm.

So without getting too excited about it just for the moment, just be prepared for potentially stormy conditions in terms of snow and possibly wind conditions as well.

Snowfall is due through into early in the week so fingers crossed we're on for a major refresh. Hey snow clouds, this way please!
