Feels like we got skunked last night, rain at my place and there was some slush on the cars but nothing really. Looks like they got 15cm up on Tenjin and 10cm from Hodaigi and you can see from today's photo, the line between snow and rain was about 100m above my place so about 800m.

It's warmish this morning, bit worried about high temps the next few days and looks like no snow until Sunday evening.
