Morning from Yuzawa.

It's another of those days when it's rather difficult to put an actual number on the snowfall - it was falling on and off during the day yesterday... sometimes building up a little and then disappearing, then building up a little once more. I think 4cm is a fair representation of how much fell since my report yesterday, though there's no fresh to be seen on the ground at the start of the day today. (Hope that makes sense!)

Here's what is being reported by ski resorts:

Kagura: a rather curious 5cm-30cm at the Kagura Area; 5cm at Mitsumata; 10cm at Tashiro.
Maiko Snow Resort: 5cm

I'm interested in that 30cm at Kagura and how it ranges from 5cm to 30cm! Sadly, I can't make my way up there today to check first-hand.

Lots of cloud around this morning still, some rather grey ones in places but much brighter in some directions and the forecast does point to clearer conditions during the day today. It should get up to around +6C in town today and a little warmer tomorrow with sunny skies forecast.

Anyway, I'm jealous if you can make your way up to check out the snow today. Have fun. Take care.
