Morning from Shiga Kogen.

Just a few cm of snow this morning. There's a lot of cloud around but just as I write this there's actually a bit of sun shining through the clouds in places. And a few patches of blue sky to see. But at the same time, it's snowing. So a real mixed bag of weather conditions this morning.

Snow is what is on the forecasts for the next few days, so perhaps it'll set in and I'll have some decent numbers to report over the next few days.

LATE SEASON REPORTING
The individual Now reports will continue in each area until the season in that place closes - some will continue daily, some will become less than daily once we get into April.

Once the season has finished everywhere, we will be adding a general season wrap up to each of the reports, where we will also answer questions and comments that we regularly get sent. Some do keep on coming back! The end of season message will be up at the end of Golden Week in early May.

Thank you for reading.
