Plenty of snow overnight and its still falling moderately here this afternoon.

Winds were fierce earlier and Tenjin is having a closed Friday.

Should be on fire tomorrow and the forecast is for a bluebird morning and clouds to pull in later on. Next snow forecast for Sunday night.

All the Minakami resorts have had a decent snowfall so the last weekend of Feb is shaping up nicely.
