The rain did arrive yesterday - along with warm temperatures and strong winds later in the day - in Nozawa and today started off rainy though that has now cleared up.

It really did get quite warm overnight but has been cooling down as the day has progressed - right now at 3pm it is about 5 degrees in the village. The warmer temperature and rain means that there has been a fair amount of snow melt.

Lower slopes, now closed, are looking patchy with snow getting thin on the ground but upper slopes still have a lot of snow left and the resort will very likely be able to open until the planned closing date of May 5th without any problems.

There is a slight chance of snow tomorrow but more likely to be just cloudy, followed by perhaps clearer weather on Sunday.
