Thankfully the wet at the start of the day yesterday didn't last much past my report - which was something of a relief!

While there's no cm to add to the tally this morning - not from myself or from the resorts that report either - there's a dusting of snow in places and it has been snowing this morning (lightly), but is not just at the moment. It's actually quite bright at the moment and there's also a few breaks in the cloud in places especially to the north of Yuzawa.

Light snow is on the forecast for the day but perhaps it'll be another of those days where the snow clouds miss us and it ends up being fine? We'll just have to see.

The heavier snow that the forecasts had been telling us about seem to have been downgraded, though snow is still forecast (as I said) for today and hopefully heavier in style tonight and through tomorrow as well.

This season is proving to be a difficult one - just in simply trying to report what's going on with the weather!

Anyway, hope you have a good weekend wherever you choose to be.
