It's another cloudy morning here.

Yesterday afternoon it did start... snowing. Very wet snow, sleety snow, but not much later after it started there was a thin layer of white on the ground once again. It continued overnight by the looks and there's just over 5cm on the top of my car this morning. It's far from being the driests powder, for sure, but better than rain! I would expect better conditions the higher you go this morning.

Maiko reports just a bit of snow, Naeba reports 5-10cm and Kagura is reporting 10-15cm this morning. So I'd say dusting-5cm at lower areas and up to 15cm higher up.

So it's cloudy and grey to start the day off, but a few small signs to the north that in places it might just clear a bit. False alarms perhaps, and indeed the forecast is for cloudy conditions for today and temperatures to remain around 1C or 2C.

Naeba seem to be saying there's moderate wind at summit over there, but not affecting lifts. All resorts appear to be opening as normal.

Snowfall is expected again before the day ends and overnight into tomorrow. It should be getting colder as well tomorrow and with a potentially decent amount to fall conditions should be good tomorrow morning.
