There are some issues currently with the data for our high resolution model, but below is a graphic depicting what I am seeing for today. This week should really pound all of the major ski areas in Japan however winds should also be quite strong at times, possibly reaching 70km/hr across the higher peaks of Hokkaido. I don't expect much snow today (possibly up to 12cm by evening at highest peaks), but today will be the start of a prolonged period of on and off light to moderate snow. I want to have a look at the high resolution models before making a final forecast on it, but I would be excited for fresh powder, which appears to be mostly dry at the moment. The winds as I mentioned may be an issue the middle of this week, with possible lift closures at some locations.
