Morning from Yuzawa.

There was some sudden heavy rain and blustery wind in the afternoon yesterday - don't know if the lifts were able to remain open, I'd be kind of surprised if they could!

This morning is calmer with just a slight southerly breeze and it's mostly cloudy out there. Fairly bright and some blue sky.

It doesn't look like Kagura are reporting any snow at all from overnight.

It's going to keep to around 10C during the day in town if the forecast is right, and start to get a bit warmer again tomorrow.
