Morning from Yuzawa.

It's not going to be as warm today - thankfully!

I was up at Mitsumata yesterday lunchtime and the temperature reading by the side of the road said 16 degrees. And that was up at Mitsumata. According to the news last night a high of 18 degrees in Yuzawa and 20 degrees in Minamiuonuma was recorded yesterday. Scarily warm. The snow round the back of my place has all but gone now and there will have been some serious melting going on unfortunately and looking around town you can see patches of earth peaking through the snow in places on some lower runs.

But like I said, happily it's not going to be as warm today and the forecasts even point towards some cold weather this week - and some fresh snow as well.

The 6-day forecast almost looks like mid-winter Wednesday to Friday, as it stands at the moment. Colder conditions and snowfall. And while it may be raining in town to start off with at least, there's a chance of some decent snowfall on the mountains.

So we have that to look forward to.

The somewhat mad weather of this strange season continues.
