A fine morning in Zao Onsen.

Mostly blue skies and the sun shining with just some white clouds here and there, hiding the sun from time to time and casting shadows on the slopes.

No new snow to report this morning and hardly any wind.

Taking a look forward at the forecast for the week. Hmmm, not much snow on there at all. Mostly sunny with cloud, the chance of some snow showers and even a bit of rain around Saturday. Tomorrow and Saturday in particular are going to be unseasonably warm but it does look like from Sunday onwards we will return to somewhat colder conditions again.
