The full on winter conditions continued yesterday... in northern parts of the Prefecture again. I have a friend in Niigata city who was talking about snow nearly up to 1m piled up outside their home and causing endless problems. A local train stuck in the snow for half a day also made the national news. They're just not used to it up there.

All that while we once again got next to none. That early morning light snow yesterday didn't amount to much and we got some more blue sky and sun.

This has been known to happen before of course, but it is still really unusual - and somewhat annoying for everyone involved!

So I have no new snowfall to report to you this morning and it looks like it is going to be a beautiful morning with almost clear skies at the start of the day; just a few small clouds in places at 7am.

It is a very cold start too.

So snow conditions are far from 'best' at the moment and we should expect some hard and fast conditions. Keep that in mind and take care.

All the same, it should be a fine morning to be outside and on the mountain and a good one to take the camera for some beautiful early morning mountain scenery. Clouds are due to gather as the day goes on so the clear skies might not last too long.

Snow clouds are due to move in later on and give us fresh snow overnight so I am hoping to be able to bring some good snow news tomorrow morning. Let's see if they come down south to visit us this time around. Fingers crossed.
