Morning from Yuzawa.

Yesterday it was a mixed bunch of weather conditions in the area - light snow, cloudy, some blue sky, bit of sunshine. It couldn't make up it's mind. The snow didn't amount to much in the end, though snow clouds moved in overnight. As of 8:30am, there's 5cm to report here in town and this is how much fresh snowfall that resorts are reporting:

Kagura: 20cm
Kagura (Mitsumata): 15cm
Tashiro: 10cm
Maiko Snow Resort: dusting (7:15am)

Just this last hour or so has been mixed conditions as well actually and right now there's even a bit of blue sky over parts of Yuzawa...

The forecast though is for snowfall, with heavier conditions likely later on in the day and tonight with light snow forecast for the day tomorrow too. A good decent fresh layer is always welcome so let's hope we get that overnight.

All resorts in the area appear to be opening as planned this morning.
