Cloud did clear at times yesterday leaving us with periods of blue sky and sunshine, but the cloud was never far away and fairly quickly moving back in. It just doesn't seem to want to be clear for a day this season!

This morning lots of cloud up above and we have had a bit of snowfall overnight. There's about 4cm on the top of my car and both Maiko Snow Resort and Kagura reporting 10cm. Some good fast conditions yesterday so a new layer and continued cold should keep things in decent condition.

Snowfall is actually forecast for the day, but it's weak just at the moment.

Looking to the upcoming weekend we are expecting some fine weather conditions tomorrow and perhaps the sun out, and slightly warmer conditions with a high of around +4C down at town level. From later on in the day on Sunday the next big delivery of snow is lining up with some expected moderate to heavy snow going into Monday. That should give everywhere a good decent refresh.

Regular refreshes, that's what we want now. There's certainly no mid season lack of snow worries.
