Morning from a lovely bright and sunny Yuzawa and Minamiuonuma.

Almost clear blue skies early on this morning, just a bit of very thin cloud here and there giving it a lighter blue look.

It actually seems to have got a bit hazier looking in the 30 minutes since I started putting this report together. Cloud is actually expected to move in by late morning or early afternoon, but no snow (or rain) forecast.

The 2cm I am putting in the report is from yesterday afternoon... no new snow overnight, just a frosting on the car. Kagura are also reporting 5cm of snow since yesterday.

It is a chilly start to the day but forecast to warm up to maybe around +7C this afternoon.

There doesn't feel like much of a wind down here in town but GALA Yuzawa are saying that they will be closed today due to strong winds forecasts up there. No word of closure from Kagura as I write this...

Not really much in terms of snowfall on the forecast at the moment, Thursday looking like the best chance though as the forecast stands right now we probably can't expect anything major.

It's the 63rd Yuzawa Onsen Yuki Matsuri (Snow Festival) this coming Saturday with the main event from 5pm until 9pm. Lots of festival like events going on ending with fireworks at 8:50pm. Should be fun. There's no shortage of snow this season of course, but would be good we get some fresh snow that the snow sculpting folk can get to work with.
