Pretty grim out there today. The possible snow that might have been on the cards for yesterday afternoon didn't materialize. Instead we had light rain up high and warmish temperatures. Much the same today. It is pretty warm out there. Rain down low and light snow if you go very high. Again there is the possibility that it might turn to snow later but if not, it looks like a day of rain in Minakami.

The warm temperatures of the last few days have taken their toll on the snow. It is definitely in need of a top-up but the forecast says there is a cold front moving in bring several days of snow with it.
