Snowing again

Returned home this afternoon to a steady snowfall here on the island. The snow is fairly wet, but as the day goes on and it gets a little colder, it has started snowing more vigouously. We're expecting 5-10 cms tonight, and then rain tomorrow. At our elevation the preciptation is mixing a little but is mostly snow. I expect that above 75 m it will be very snowy indeed tonight.

Looking at the weather map, there are some big storms out in the Pacific at the moment and some heavy frontal systems due to hit towards the end of next week. Also, another winter hurricane is sirling around the Kamchatka penisula, too far off for us, but impressive looking nonetheless.
