Subtract 5-8 IMHO.

So I assume you would want a number of data points going in a particular direction from a start point. And do you average these across the mountain or do you just try to pick a line that has a typical profile?
How much can you do it from Google maps? These are getting quite accurate - well I assume the info they include is relatively accurate.
Modern technology makes this stuff so much easier.

jontsy said:Sandy, is it just me or does there seem to be season inertia in Japan? A change in season seems to come late than elsewhere. For example, in Sydney, the weather started getting warmer around late August, where in Japan it didn't start getting cooler until mid-September.
vito43 said:Hi everyone. Does anyone else find the JMA long range forecasts a bit vague? I mean does 40% chance below normal snowfall mean a 60% chance of above normal?
Are these forecasts generally accurate?
With the exception of 08/09 is there any evidence of el nino adversely affecting snowfall and temps at Japanese resorts? Is it looking like this el nino phase will last and if so how strong, how long and frankly how the heck do you tell?!!
