Good morning from Grandeco.

Just a dusting of snow but not enough to record any cm this morning, but it is keeping cold and so snow conditions are keeping good for March.

According to the forecast it will be snowing today but it's not snowing as of 8:30am.

Snow is expected to be falling on and off until tomorrow and then the weekend will be cloudy with perhaps some clearer skies.

18-20 March is a three-day weekend in Japan and the weather will be good but the ski resorts will probably be crowded. Some ski grounds in the Bandai area will end their ski season after this three-day weekend.
