Morning from Yuzawa.

A dusting of snow earlier on, but that's gone now because unfortunately it is raining.

We never like rain in mid-winter of course, so really hoping that it will get colder and turn into snow asap. Looking like it might be this evening before we can realistically expect that to happen, but snow is forecast for the day tomorrow as it should be much colder during the day time.

Possibly some strong southerly winds at higher elevations during the day but resorts all look like they are opening as planned at the start of the day.

So it's not the best of news this morning, but there is snow to look forward to.
