Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

Cloudy at the beginning of the day but it has been improving and like neighbouring regions we are seeing increasing clearer skies and sunshine - perhaps we'll more of it as the day goes on. Definitely much calmer.

No fresh snow being reported by resorts. But I measured some - since my report yesterday, so that is what is recorded here. (Why do ski resorts here seem to just ignore snow that falls in the daytime. An ongoing frustration; let's move on!)

OK so, tomorrow. Sunshine. That's nice. Warmer conditions. Not so. Some forecasts have some rain even up here in Shiga Kogen. I am hoping we will avoid that. The good news in all that is that it should be snowing once again early in the week.

So generally fine weather due during the day today and tomorrow.

Hope some of you can enjoy it.
