Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

Along with the snow clouds, there's some breaks in the clouds appearing in places and even glimpses of blue sky on this cold morning. Often quickly being hidden again, but interesting weather conditions this morning. There's even a bit of sun shining through over at Okushiga as I write this (with light snow falling at the same time).

Did I mention all the snow? Kumanoyu are reporting 50cm of snowfall this morning. Yokoteyama are also reporting 50+cm of snowfall! Very nice. (Yakebitaiyama are being curiously shy this morning and not mentioning a number).

Today should be excellent conditions but with clearer skies forecast and hopefully a bit more snow today, tomorrow should be fantastic.

Temperatures look likely to be rising again over the weekend with another of those 'unseasonably warm' scenarios. Hopefully we'll be getting more fresh snow on the other side of the weekend and forecasts do show temps going back low around Tuesday.
