Morning.

After that rain in the first part of the day yesterday, happily it turned into snow later on and this morning we have just under 10cm of fresh on the ground.

Kagura are this morning reporting 2cm of fresh snow at Kagura, 10cm at Mitsumata and 20cm at Tashiro. My best guess is that there's a typo there and it was actually 20cm at Kagura too. Maiko Snow Resort just to the north of Yuzawa is reporting 10-20cm of fresh.

More unexpected was the sunshine and clearer skies earlier on this morning, though it seems to gradually be clouding over again now and snow is still there on the forecast for the day. There is still regular snowfall on the forecast for the week, with perhaps the heaviest expected tonight and tomorrow. The third photo (below) for today is from Maiko (the first is GALA and the second is NASPA).

So it should be a nice early morning with hopefully snow starting to fall again fairly soon. And fingers crossed, a lot of it!
