Woke up this morning to some nice fluffy snow coming down in moderate amounts.

It has turned intermittent now and a look down the valley to Minakami town sees blue skies. Seems we're fortunate to be getting some and given the ground temps are still above zero its struggling to accumulate.

The Tanigawadake mountain forecast is for it to continue all day and strengthen tonight which could see Winter get underway so fingers crossed.

Tenjin Ski Resort is reporting temps of -1 and a light N/E wind.

At the base of the Ropeway its hovering around +1. Surfaces that cool quickly, like my car roof, have 1 inch and the forest is beautifully speckled.
