Well, early on this morning it is just cloudy and actually quite bright out there. A hint of some wet on the roads from overnight, but it is not snowing or raining as I write this report. It remained quite mild overnight and it now as well at about +3 degrees with a high of around +5 forecast for the middle of the day. There is a chance of some light snow falling in higher areas but apart from that I think the best we can hope for weather wise is for rain to hold off. Tomorrow looks like it might be much of the same really and we are going to have to wait until early in the week for temperatures to drop and get back to more winter-like conditions. Wednesday onwards is looking good for potentially decent snowfall coming in.

So not the best weather/snow conditions for the weekend by any stretch of the imagination. There's certainly a lot of snow about but we could really do with that nice new thick layer of soft fluffy goodness. Can't have it like that every single day though - and we are generally spoilt here - and I'm sure it will be lots of fun out there anyway! I would say that better conditions the higher up you go.

Have a good weekend.

Evening update

[Please note: The following report was posted at 7:30PM on Saturday 21st January. The time stamp above shows an incorrect time due to the complexities of a server move!]

I'm not able to bring the best of news this evening -- after a generally cloudy day, it is raining in Yuzawa and Minamiuonuma this evening though in higher areas it is sleet/snow. The local Niigata forecast has mountain regions expecting up to 5-10cm of snowfall overnight, so there is hope that it will turn into snow overnight and we will be nicely surprised by snow in the morning. Fingers crossed folks!
