The wind is way up, the rain is occasionally sprinkling down, but no heavy rains just yet on a Monday in Myoko.

You can almost see the snowpack decreasing in the breeze, though; there's still a good amount of snow up on the hill, but the roadside walls are just falling away rapidly. It is WARM, too - all the morning reports are in the just-under-plus-ten degrees area (except Akakura Onsen, which didn't file today, and Seki, which has listed a cryptic "00" for the temperature....)

Looks like rain will continue through tomorrow, when one again the freezing line will be coming way don the mountain, bringing some snow with it. It's definitely been a blustery March this year (unfortunately without the powder we've seen over the last few seasons).

The high wind makes lift closures possible, so check before you go, especially the gondolas at Suginohara and Akakan.
