As with many regions of Japan right now, the mild conditions continue.

Just a bit of cloud this morning but mostly blue sky. A light breeze.

Tomorrow is going to be the warmest of the lot and there is a good chance that rain will be falling. That may turn to snow overnight but not a huge amount expected. Strong winds forecast for Saturday too. It will have been a strange week with the huge snowfall and then this sudden rise in temperature. Got a feeling the weekend might throw up a few surprises. Would be great if they were good ones.
