The sun is out again today; actually the sky is pretty well covered with the high, thin clouds that usually precede a change of the weather (meaning some precipitation ahead).

Out on the ocean the winds are blowing from the south/southeast, which could mean rain (and rain is on the Snow Japan forecast for the area today and this afternoon). Then once again the freezing line comes down, and snow should be falling from tonight into tomorrow. Kind of sad to see the word "heavy" disappear from the snow forecast... we could use one more good thick coating on the hills. Things do look like they're going to spring early next week - but this is mountain weather! You never know!

Stay confident!
