Good morning from Zao.

Yesterday was a such a comfortable day. If it were October, I might be pleased. But 11C isn't what I want to be reporting in early December. It was a Japan-wide thing though, not just this region.

The Chuo area is looking rather bare now (see below).

The peak of that warm spell is now behind us as we look forward to temperatures taking a drop with snow due from later on Friday and through the weekend.
