Good morning from Yuzawa.

It is yet another fine morning here with - once again - clear skies and sunshine from early on.

With some snow falling later on yesterday (again!), Kagura is reporting 5-10cm of fresh snow overnight and Maiko Snow Resort are reporting 5cm. I can record 3cm.

It's pretty cold, but due to warm up and temperatures into low positive numbers during the day in town.

Tomorrow is currently forecast to start off with sunshine again and but it seems things are really going to be warming up, perhaps even approaching double digit temperatures in the afternoon. Thankfully though, by Sunday the snow should be falling once again - though there is a good chance that later in the day rain falls before it gets colder and turns into snow. From Sunday things should be starting to get colder once again, though not as cold as it has generally been the last week.

Going to be interesting to see how things shape up over the next few days.

Sunday is National Foundation Day in Japan and because of that Monday is a national holiday, so it is a 3 day long weekend for many people and one of the most popular weekends of the season. Expect places to be busy; early starts recommended.
