Morning from Nozawa and there's some snow to report again.

Up to 20cm of fresh snow on the upper Yamabiko runs since yesterday morning according to the resort (going to have to go check that out I think), with 10cm on Uenotaira and just a bit on lower areas (not the driest snow I have seen, but it is mid March!)

Right now visibility looks limited on upper areas of the mountain especially but we can probably expect things to clear up later in the day with a chance of some sunshine later on even.

Sun is forecast from tomorrow through Thursday and perhaps beyond, as well as increasing temperatures. Come Friday it should be getting rather warm, but beyond that it'll be cooling down again.

Word of warming about Saturday - rain is on the forecasts for that day at the moment; as they are now, Sunday would look to be the better weekend choice. We all know how those forecasts can change (and be wrong) though!
