Good morning from Yuzawa.

Heavy snow, traffic congestion, road accidents, roads closed, 50cm of snowfall... that was the news from many areas of Niigata Prefecture yesterday. Lots of snow falling in places where it doesn't usually fall.

Here in Yuzawa, after that early snowfall when the original report was being written it cleared and... didn't snow (until later on again, and just very lightly at that). The sun came out even. As mentioned in the report yesterday, the snow clouds were busy tracking to the north of our region and delivering the snow to northern regions of Niigata - including Niigata city itself. The problem is that they don't want the snow. And we do want it!

I'm happy to report that has started snowing here this morning. As of 9am Kagura were reporting 0-1cm of fresh snow and there's just a dusting down here; with a few cm on the ground just to the north in Minamiuonuma.

This snowfall doesn't seem set to last though with sun even on some forecasts (which generally seem a bit confused with the confusing weather of the last few days).

We could do with that 50cm that areas to the north has gotten to refresh our lovely slopes. We don't have a lack of snow; just need fresh snow. Normal weather patterns please! It seems we are going to have to wait for that though. Chance of more snow later tomorrow?
