Morning from Shiga Kogen. No new snow to report this morning as expected and it is a cloudy start to the day.

Mild as well. The forecast is for something to be falling today - it might be borderline rain or snow. Of course, we're all hoping snow.

Tomorrow though Thursday will probably be a mix of cloud and clearer skies with temperatures hovering just under 0C during the daytime.

Then come Friday, the snow should start. And it should get really cold too. Lots of snow? Could well be.

Visitors over next weekend may not want to be ideally skiing in blizzard conditions, but we can't ski much at all without more snow. All Santa requests for heavy snow over Christmas, agreed? :)
