Morning from Nozawa and the forecasts did tell us to expect some snowfall overnight - and we got some, a modest 5cm or so.

This morning there's some breaks in the cloud for us here in the village but I can see that visibility is very limited up on the Yamabiko and Uenotaira areas... it might even be snowing up there still - it was down here until just before.

It will likely clear up fairly quickly though and we're forecast a generally cloudy day with the chance of more snow overnight (probably light snow again).

Not much else to report really at the moment as we fast approach February. In the coming days I'll take a look back at the season so far and compare snowfall with previous seasons.

Have a good Sunday.
