Good morning from Yuzawa.

Very early report this morning!

The clouds generally remained over Yuzawa for most of the day yesterday – perhaps longer than we thought would be the case - with some very light snow falling at times, even into the afternoon. (The 1cm of fresh in the report is from early on after my report when it was still snowing). If was far from the kind of snow where new cm would have built up though; certainly not down in town areas. By late afternoon though the sun was out and it was mostly clear skies.

Early this morning there are some clouds around but it is forecast to be a very fine day so if the forecasts are right those clouds should be clearing up.

This week there looks like a chance of rain around Wednesday, and maybe even at higher elevations too as the freezing point rises to 2000m and we have a bit of a mild spell. As always, we of course hope that any rain is short-lived and we can get back to winter and snowfall once again. Let’s keep an eye on that forecast.

It’s a regular Monday morning so ski resorts will generally be quite after a pretty busy weekend.
