Soon after I posted the report yesterday the rain had turned into wet snow, but it was back between the two during the day. A bit wet even when it was snowing really.

Not much snow to report down in town, just a sprinkling really, though Maiko does seem to be reporting 5-10cm on the mountain this morning and Kagura reporting 15cm so it sounds like there is some fresh up there to be found.

It looks like today is again going to be borderline rain-sleet-snow here in town. Right now there's actually a break in the clouds and even some blue sky - that's not forecast to continue though. Signs that it will get slightly colder tonight and tomorrow so we will perhaps have some decent snowfall to report tomorrow.

Temperatures still set to rise over the weekend - Sunday in particular. Let's hope for a return to winter sometime next week.

In the meantine, Happy Chinese New Year and have a fine day.
