Almost clear skies for a change this morning!

Yesterday the clouds were hanging on for most of the day and it was even still snowing very lightly at times, especially at higher elevations. Nothing in terms of new cm though.

The forecast told us to expect sun today and that seems to be what we're going to get. Lovely blue skies with just a bit of cloud remaining over Yuzawa, clearer blue skies over Minamiuinuma looking north. Currently -1C but forecast to warm up to +6 degrees at town level during the day today. Getting a bit warmer than we would like, it should be a great day out today.

We haven't had many of these clearer days so far this season so it's a bit of a treat!

Cloud forecast tomorrow with a chance of rain before snow later in the day. Higher up, it should go straight to snow.
