Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

As expected, it's sunny from the start of the day today and warmer temperatures are forecast. It is going to be a fine day.

Something of a dip in temperatures again tomorrow and the day after, but nothing drastic.

There's just one more week left for a few of the ski areas of Shiga Kogen. Contrast that to the Yokoteyama area which is even mentioning early June as their possible closing date. That's going to depend on the snow of course and how quickly things warm up this spring.
