The precipitation has arrived! Its raining at the village level with low Cumulo-Stratus clouds covering the valley. Above 1200m sleet has been falling most of the morning but it is finally turning to snow, albeit fairly wet. The snow is expected to continue to tomorrow morning which should accumulate to about 20 - 30cm.

The temparatures are quite low today, around 4 deg C at the village level and 0 deg C above 1200m.

For those people who are in Japan over the Xmas and New Year and wish to head to the mountains of Minakami, make sure you book your accommodation ASAP, as the local lodges, hotels and pensions are starting to fill up.

My prediction is that the first decent snow in Minakami will be just before the weekend of Dec 23rd. Plenty of time to sort out all of you Winter gear, wax you board, and get some avalanche beacon training in.
