It was snowing for pretty much most of the day here yesterday, but by evening there wasn't a huge amount to show for it - mostly because of the strong gusty winds that were persisting throughout the day. So for the most part there wasn't enough snow to cover that layer of ice from the previous days rain unfortunately. Better conditions were to be found higher up.

Difficult to put numbers on the new snowfall. 10cm on the top of my car since last night and 5cm in the day and so 15cm seems a good number. Naeba is reporting 5-10cm. Kagura reports 20-30cm. Other resorts have increased their numbers by around 20cm so that should give a decent idea.

It's still snowing this morning but much less windy and all resorts are opened as scheduled. Currently about -1C in town. The snow is expected to ease off later on today.

From tomorrow, lots of sun in the coming week. And it's going to get warmer. Very warm by the end of the week by the looks of the latest forecast with temperatures likely to rise well into double digit numbers.

Has this been the last prolonged winter like snow storm of the season before we click into 'spring season' proper? Possibly, but certainly not the last snow of course. Many of the resorts around town are open until the end of March/beginning of April. Higher places continue through into May, and Kagura often is still open at the end of May. So a long time left yet.
