Good morning from Yuzawa where the day starts off just cloudy, and that is what the forecast is for much of the day really with a high of around 4C expected.

The day is starting off fairly chilly though, currently around 0C.

Yesterday soon after my report went up it was snowing properly and it was good to see it coming down. Not as much as we would have liked though with just a few cm on the ground around town and hopefully a bit more than that higher up. I notice this morning that Kagura are reporting 1-2cm of fresh, with both Naeba and Maiko Snow Resort reporting 5cm.

There's the chance of occasional snow here and there still on the forecast over the next few days, but if and when it does snow I wouldn't expect much more than light snow like yesterday.

Local forecasts seem to be pointing towards a largely sunny day tomorrow in fact.

We can just hope that things don't warm up too much...

Resort official snow depths (Thursday 10th March 2016) and any specific news at time of writing:

After some very warm conditions recently, there are some patches of ground on view on some lower slopes around town now. Southern facing slopes are generally more affected. Some courses at resorts are closed due to the snow situation - best to check with the individual resorts for their up-to-date details. Snow cover remains good higher up and is not a problem.
