Ah, clear skies! Something we haven't seen much of this season but early morning here and there are clear skies over Yuzawa. Just a few clouds to the north but the early morning sun is starting to add some colour. It's going to be a beautiful morning.

No new snowfall overnight, though it did continue snowing until late afternoon yesterday and I would say there was 5-10cm to add to the total.

Cold start to the day, and icy outside. Sunshine should warm things up a bit during the day with a high of around +4 forecast.

The clear skies aren't going to last that long though. Upcoming is the chance of rain tomorrow (lower levels anyway), before ending up snowing once again.

Anyway, today should be one to be enjoyed!
