Good morning from Nozawa on this fine spring morning. Oh wait, it's early January?! ...kind of feeling.

As the forecasts told us, it's a mild start to the day and the sun is shining with lots of blue sky above us. A feel good day at most times, but as has been said quite a bit so far already this season we just need cold blizzard conditions rather than more sun and warmth.

It's going to warm up to maybe 7C today and possibly a bit higher still during the day tomorrow.

Clouds are expected tomorrow and they might bring with them a bit of rain later on in the day before hopefully turning into snow on Tuesday. It should at least be snowing on upper areas of the mountain anyway. There is more lined up for later in the week as well along with colder conditions so there's some hope there.

For the moment, try to forget it's early January and think of it as spring. It makes it easier!

Last day of the New Year holidays for most people today, back to fun Mondays from tomorrow!
