Good morning.

A mostly cloudy day yesterday with the sun breaking through sometimes - it felt colder than the thermometer said it was.

We are of course expecting warmer conditions again today, and the sun is out at the start of the morning. The forecasts are saying that the temperature might even be approaching 20C later on (!). Rain is expected too; heavy rain overnight.

By tomorrow temps should be lower and hopefully come Friday we will be able to forget such silly weather and get stuck into colder conditions and the start of the first decent snowfall of the season. Looking good for snow starting late Friday and continuing over the weekend and into early week.

Kagura remains open though the slope is looking in need of fresh snow. Let's not worry, this weekend should deliver.
