Good morning.

Lots of cloud again this morning, feels similar to yesterday. It's a cold start but it will get to be milder during the day.

Good news is that the forecast shows the chance of some actual decent snowfall around tomorrow night. I'm wary of putting too much faith in forecasts right now, but I do hope it is right.

I'm afraid that I am the bearer of some not good news from Alts Bandai. They got to open from 10th January, but unfortunately they are struggling for snow base and they have announced that they are going to have to temporarily close from tomorrow, Monday 20th January. Not enough snow.

They will re-open once there is enough snow...

It seems that Japan-wide people aren't quite believing how different from usual things are turning out to be this winter.

Let us all hope that we can see some usual winter weather patterns roll in...
