Yesterday was a curious one - it stayed mild most of the day and we had flurries of snow as well as that rainfall during the day. Strong winds too later on in the day. By late evening it was snowing and this morning we have perhaps 15cm or so of snow though it will be more on the mountains - Iwappara this morning are reporting 20-30cm of snow and Kagura are reporting 30cm.

It is snowing quite heavily as I write this and definitely feels colder than yesterday. Looks like we might be on for another 30cm or so today if this carries on. As you might expect in such conditions, poor visibility with a fairly moderate wind as well.

The moderate winds this morning only seems to be affecting the Dragondola connecting Naeba and Tashiro which is closed - all other resorts open though if strong winds persist expect them to be running slow and/or stopped at times.

It is currently -1 degrees in Yuzawa and will probably stay at around that point for most of the day.

The forecast of really heavy snow tonight into tomorrow seems to have changed - while we will surely see snow continue today and tomorrow into Friday the forecast seems to have been scaled down somewhat.

PM update:

Just a quick update for the evening...

It has been snowing pretty much all day today - and quite heavily at times with some strong winds. There was about 25cm of snow on the top of my car at 5pm and all of that had accummulated since 9am this morning.

It is taking a break from the snow at the moment but we have 20-40cm of snow forecast to fall between now and 9am tomorrow morning and snow forecast for all day tomorrow.

So the winter conditions are continuing. It looks like it might be snow on and off through until the end of the weekend.
