winter starts next week?

it's been a bit of a slow start to winter again this year but looks promising once the next storm passes. Coming from the south it is a bit warm which will bring rainfall with it.. ouch.. but after it passes the wind will come from the west straight off the Asian Continent and with it a nice flow of cold air, snowfall is forecast from Monday next week.

We look at Metvew which has one of the best outlooks going 168 hour out from the current day. You can easily find a link to it on our weather page and we have posted a few images below for you see, Niseko is at about the 140E and 42.5 north which is just to the right and above the centre of the maps.
