It's not good news this morning. Heavy rain at times overnight and heavy rain is expected on and off during the day today.

And with some forecasts having temperatures rising as high as a mind-boggling 20 degrees today, there's obviously no chance of snow even higher up. As of 8am it's already above 10 degrees and indeed has been around that through the night. Something wrong with that! You can see on the Kagura webcam the damage that rain has obviously done up there compared with yesterday. Perhaps it's just best we get this abnormal weather out of the way once and for all so that winter can move in.

Thankfully it should be dropping back down tomorrow somewhat with sunshine and clearer skies forecast.

But what's that on the week forecast for around mid-week next week? The first snowfall down to town level maybe? Onegai shimasu!

For the moment though we are going to have to continue holding tight.
