After a cloudy start now at lunchtime the sun is out and there is a lot of blue sky above Zao Onsen. No fresh snowfall overnight and a mild temperature hovering around 0C at the moment. No wind.

So tomorrow more of the same and Friday even warmer with temperatures nudging above zero, perhaps alarmingly so. Hopefully back to snow by Saturday morning, though strong winds seem likely as well. Interesting forecast at the moment, let's see if it adjusts before we hit the weekend.
