Morning from Yuzawa.

Yesterday ended up being a generally cloud/fine day in the region and there's no new snow to report this morning.

Early on it's a mix of blue sky and cloud above us and a temperature of just under +1C here in town. Temperatures are forecast to rise to around 6-7C during the day today.

We're hoping that the forecast is right when it says to expect snow falling by the end of the day today and into tomorrow - should be some fresh cm to report in my next report.

There is more snow on the forecast into the weekend but it looks like more a case of sometimes light snow showers than heavy dumpage.[

Anyway in the meantime it's a good morning to be outside.
