I'm glad I waited to post the report. In the last 15 minutes or so, the clouds have broken up and the sun is out and suddenly a lot of blue sky above Yuzawa. Snow is forecast for the day so whether it's just a temporary let up or not, I don't know.

Yesterday was a curious one. It wasn't that cold hovering around the 0 degrees mark for most of the day, but it did snow all day and sometimes quite heavily. Even so, there was only 5cm or so of snow in the evening on my car, which was something of a surprise. (I was expecting 30cm or so).

There's another 5-10cm or so in town this morning. And, Kagura have reported 40-50cm, so it obviously snowed quite hard higher up!

Anyway the sun is still out as I post this though like I said snow forecast for the rest of the day and also over the weekend - though probably just light snow. And as today it might even turn out good weather. I'll post an update here this evening with the latest.

PM update:

Well it stayed fine for most of today, clouding over a bit later on - so the forecast has been off today and no new snow to report, though this evening some very light snow is falling.

5-10cm forecast overnight but oftentimes that ends up being 0cm, so think of it as just "it might snow a bit tonight"! The forecast for tomorrow as it stands is light snow and cloud and similar for Sunday with Monday the best chance of fine weather over this coming long weekend.

Tuesday night into Wednesday looking like we might get some more heavy snow.

Hope you have a good weekend!
