Good morning from Yuzawa.

Hmmmm...

It was more about the wind during the day yesterday. The wind messed around with an increasing number of ski lifts at different resorts as the day went on.

But by late night the howling winds had calmed down and overnight it was more about the mild conditions and rain. Heavy rain at times. :(

This warmth, wind and rain will inevitably not have been kind to the snow.

And indeed it is very noticeable how much snow has disappeared around my neighbourhood in the last day. You can probably notice the same thing on the webcam image from near the Yuzawa IC today (see below and compare it with a few days ago).

It is actually forecast to get colder as the morning goes on and we hope that this rain might turn into sleet and then snow by tonight and overnight. The best case is that we might get a bit of a fresh layer of snow by tomorrow morning. That is more likely to happen at higher elevations.

Anyway, sorry for brining this somewhat gloomy news this morning.

We might not have any fresh snow, but weather conditions should be more settled from tomorrow into early next week with quite a lot of sunshine forecast. So while the snow conditions may be 'spring', we should be able to enjoy the pleasant spring weather.

All of the ski resorts should be opening this morning.
