Morning from Yuzawa and once again the sun is out and it's a fine start to the day.

Resorts were generally busy yesterday with lots of people wanting to take advantage of the new snowfall we enjoyed. Today is not a national holiday but I expect that a few people have taken an extra day off today to give themselves a 4-day long weekend.

It got pretty warm yesterday with the clouds clearing and the sun coming out leaving us with a beautiful day, but it's going to get warmer still today. Like maybe even around 10 degrees warm. And tomorrow slightly warmer still. Different forecasts are saying different things about rain - whether it will be raining tomorrow or on Sunday - but unfortunately we are almost certain to get rained on sometime over the weekend. If we need to get rain it would be good if it could happen once the races over at Naeba are finished on Sunday...

Anyway, prepare for some spring-like weather conditions over the next few days.
