This morning is indeed colder in Shiga Kogen though not much more than a thin layer of snow since yesterday really. The trees are looking frosted and there's a chill in the air which is good to feel. Just generally cloudy this morning though differing conditions in different parts of the Shiga Kogen area - ranging from a few breaks in the cloud to reveal a bit of blue sky here and there (but not much) to light snow falling and poor visibility in others (Yokoteyama) at the time of writing this.

Tomorrow we might get to see the sun after a cold night tonight and it should keep cold for tomorrow. Keeping cold is helping with the snow, but without much refresh over the last run of days and milder conditions, there's a spring-like feel to proceedings at the moment.

Early in the week might be a different story though and we might see temperatures rise into positive numbers and it's going to be borderline snow/rain even up here. All fingers and everything else crossed please as we will the former.

Hopefully once we get past this warmer spell, we might see a return to colder and more wintery conditions.

It's the weekend though for now. Time to have some fun!
