After what ended up being a very warm first part of Golden Week, this morning we have more cloud over the area - some blue skies but a lot more fast moving cloud as well. It's not as warm either, though still very mild and there is quite a strong wind as well which has been affecting lifts that were hoping to be open. At the time of writing Okushiga Kogen, Ichinose Diamond and Terakoya seem to be closed and a few other lifts that should be moving this morning are on standby due to the strong winds.

Today and tomorrow are not national holidays here, but Thursday until Sunday is the second part of Golden Week and many people will be treated to a 4-day weekend. Currently it seems we are going to get rained on a bit tomorrow and quite possibly Thursday as well. Hopefully things might clear up for the weekend, though there are chances of showers on Sunday too. Forecasts can change though, of course.
