Snow Clouds and Hoarfrost Observed at Mt. Neko in Late Autumn

The winter monsoon had strengthened after Typhoon 1722 (Saola) passed, and the first wintry winds of the year prevailed in the Kinki and Tokyo areas. Snow clouds intruded in northern Nagano prefecture, and hoarfrost was observed with shallow snowcover on the slopes of Mt. Neko. The hoarfrost developed quickly and spread across the mountain forests, giving the impression of a snow-capped mountain. Snow clouds were stratified with sporadic open blue skies. The autumn leaves were at their peak around the Ueda basin. Late autumn is the most colorful season in the northern Japanese Alps region.
