A bit more snow last night on Yotei and for the first time this season snow has settled around the top of Annupuri. You can feel the buzz of excitement building around the village knowing winter isn't far off now. There's also the usual last minute rush, coupled with a little panic, to get everything organised before the hordes start arriving in December.

More precipitation is expected overnight tonight and tomorrow which should fall as snow up high on Yotei. From next Monday a significant low pressure system will approach Hokkaido and by Tuesday, as it passes through, cooler air will start being pulled down out of the north seeing the freezing level drop dramatically. At this stage I'm thinking there's a good chance to see snow to village level by Wednesday morning which is pretty early for snow to such low levels.

It's unlikely to last long down low but hopefully this it's always very exciting to get that first snowfall. Residents up this way would be well advised to consider changing over to winter tyres this weekend. Winter is almost upon us!
