Yesterday I mentioned that it was very hazy. Turns out that this was making the news - it wasn't normal haze but the effects of (particulate matter) PM2.5 pollution. As I know next to nothing about this subject, I'll let you go and check up on it but it's not a good thing. There have been warnings for people not to go outside if they can avoid it or exert themselves outside. I have even heard that some ski resorts in Niigata (in the north of the prefecture, not around here as far as I know) were warning people outside of that very message. All very concerning and odd.

One thing's for sure, it certainly looked eerie yesterday afternoon.

This morning it is cloudy here and so perhaps more difficult to tell, though it does look hazy once again. Quite how this will play out I don't know but ski resorts don't seem to be mentioning anything of it and are all open as normal.

OK back to yesterday again - it was warm. Highs of around +8 degrees so a fair bit of melting going on. Today a similar high is forecast and it is already around +6 degrees, but we also have rain later on due. Which might be good for that 2.5PM stuff according to reports on the news this morning. (Again, sorry I'm not in a position to properly comment on that as it's all new to me but you can find information online if interested to read more).

Onto the subject of snow and when can expect fresh conditions. Well, there's not a whole lot on the weekly forecast at the moment. There seems to be more chance of rain over the next few days and then clearer conditions are expected early next week.

This has to be one of the strangest reports we've had to post. Sorry about that, but got to report it. Hopefully it won't be happening much!
