Morning from Yuzawa. Lots of cloud yesterday, with some blue skies at times, but as expected the main thing was that it got rather mild. A wind made it feel colder higher up, but down in town it got to +6 degrees.

Temperatures dropped to around freezing point overnight and now as of 8am it's +1. Overcast skies and... unfortunately rain has started falling in town. Higher up it's going to be snow and hopefully it will gradually get to be that way at base as well sooner than later. Might have to wait until this evening though. Tomorrow is looking borderline as well with what exactly falls from the sky as milder conditions look likely to continue.

Looking ahead to the weekend, Saturday might bring sunshing but Sunday is looking like a real proper warm up and rain.

So bit mild at the moment and we can just hope it to keep on the colder side. Let's hope that next week will see a return to mid-winter like weather.
