Yesterday ended up with some very changeable conditions.

By 9am we had some lovely almost clear blue skies and the sun bright and all very shiny. Great start to the day and some nice conditions to be found. Cloud started forming mid morning though and by around 11am it was a much more overcast feel and soon snow was falling again.

It didn't amount to much really, and by evening with temperatures rising a little it was actually raining. Then later on last time I looked outside it was snowing.

On the car outside this morning there's 3cm of snow, and resorts reporting just a bit as well - Kagura reporting 5-10cm is the most.

And we weren't quite expecting it but the sun is out again and while it's a bit kind of hazy the skies are clear over Yuzawa. So much for the forecast of cloud, bit of left over snow and rain. Though with the speed things changed yesterday, I suppose anything can happen and looking north over towards Uonuma there is a bank of cloud over there...

The forecast for the coming week is one that reads of a confident Spring returning. If the forecasts are right there is going to be lots of sun, and a real warm up with temperatures easily getting into double digits here in town on some days. Unlikely to see snow even higher up with the freezing point rising way above out highest mountains.
