Hello from Nozawa and welcome to April.

It's another fine spring morning with some very thin cloud and haze.

The next few days are going to be pretty warm, some forecasts saying there is a chance of a few spots of rain tomorrow (and some not).

---

I was just taking a look at the observed snowfall data (below). Here's how much snowfall I have observed at base in the month of March over the last handful of seasons:

March 2018 - 5cm
March 2017 - 97cm
March 2016 - 75cm
March 2015 - 78cm
March 2014 - 178cm
March 2013 - 29cm

Pretty shocking numbers there for March. The good thing though is that for the season as a whole we have had more this season than we did in the 2015/2016 season and a similar amount to the 2013/2014 season, so it is always best to step back and look at the picture as whole.

And of course you can check out that whole picture at any time by consulting all of our reporting archives.
