So it was snowing for most of the time yesterday, and since my report yesterday there's been 5-10cm of snow fall. Kagura report 10cm this morning and Maiko saying 5-10cm, so you can get the idea.

Not as much as we might expect for after a day of snowfall, but still... just very light snow lazily falling now and it's forecast to ease off - might even get some sunshine later on today; if not, just cloudy.

It is currently -2 degrees in town and only the faint outline of the mountains can be seen just now.

Looks like we're on for some proper snow action over the weekend though with it due to start falling tomorrow night and then continue well into next week.

Weekend visitors - come prepared for snow and cold!
