Morning from Shiga Kogen.

It's almost as if I need to write two reports this morning, told also in the images below (the first one from earlier).

The sun was out earlier on with blue skies.

But right now it is snowing - and quite heavily in places too. If this continues for the day we should get a fair amount...

Blowy winds are forecast too and visibility is already rather limited and very poor in places.
