Technical difficulties mean a couple of days of missed reports during which Tenjin received 40cm plus of fresh snow.

It has been winter temps all week, plenty of snow and it's falling again moderately here now. The forecast is for this to continue all day, the snowfall is supposed to intensify this evening and continue throughout Saturday before clearing Sunday. Going out further we have snow expected on Monday and Wednesday too.

This weekend we have the local Yubiso snow festival in the park down the road. It's geared towards kids and this year the snow sculptures are a giant Anpanman, a penguin and some creature from Pokemon plus a really cool slide.
