Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

Snow early this morning, and is still snowing but also showing sings of brightening up in some areas. I was just over at Okushiga Kogen. Moderate snowfall, but signs of the sun breaking through clouds even over there. When this happens it's kind of exciting to see the weather changing and the skies 'open up', always best if the grand finale is bright sunshine and blue skies. We will have to see if we get some of that today. Feels like we might!

Kumanoyu wasn't reporting any snow this morning but Yakebitaiyama are reporting 10cm.

Today is going to remain cold.

Tomorrow is going to see things warming up somewhat once again. Sunny skies expected.
