Light grey skies gathering above Shiga Kogen at the moment - more than there were a couple of hours ago when it was sunny - and it looks like the weather is changing today.

It was chilly when I got up but getting mild quickly this morning - positive numbers now - and we may even get some spots of rain today... before it starts snowing. Phew.

Difficult to read but fingers crossed that tomorrow in my report I will be able to report fresh snow.
