Morning.

Yesterday it really warmed up and it was really hazy too - is hazy the word even?! Bright and sunny but... very hazy. I was driving on Route 17 by Ishiuchi in the afternoon and the temperature readout by the side of the road said 13C.

Cloud cover this morning and there's no sun. It's not going to be as warm today and the forecast for down in town currently is cloud, some rain at times in the day and snow tonight and into tomorrow.

There have been a few spots of rain this morning though it seems the upper parts of Kagura have seeing some snow falling - there's no new cm to report though.

Let's see how the day goes on and hope that it gets cold enough for the snow. It would be great to see a fresh layer on the ground.

Just the Kandatsu Kogen and Naeba resorts are now offering nighta floodlit skiing - info below.
