Good morning from Yuzawa.

Yesterday was... very warm. April-like warm.

It was not unexpected of course and today we are also expecting things to be warmer still with temperatures in town rising to 12C degrees and possibly above.

This morning it's generally cloudy but actually quite bright. Depending on which forecast you look at we might either get rained on heavily or not at all today; though they all seem to agree that rain is still due tomorrow. Tomorrow is also going to be very warm and there's a good chance of stronger winds as well.

Not the best of weekends weather-wise that's for sure!

Much better news for Monday though with a quick return to colder temperatures and fresh snow forecast for Monday through Wednesday.

Today is the first of two days of events at the 2016 FIS Alpine Skiing World Cup at Naeba ski resort in Yuzawa. Hopefully the event will be a success and the weather will co-operate. And the very best of luck to everyone involved and competing.
