Panic stations here this morning with what looks like another warmish day, a snow pack shrinking by 10cm per day and the fresh snow expected last night didn't materialize at the base. We had some tiny, sporadic snowfalls overnight and no doubt a bit more up top but nothing noteworthy.

The forecast is now for some snow tonight though and more tomorrow evening though the expected fall tomorrow is now looking small to moderate. Going forward we have snow showers or light snow forecast right through the next 6 days so there is hope yet.

Today's photo is actually from last Sunday, Mar 11th, in the backcountry towards Mt Tanigawa.
