Well that was perhaps a bit surprising - we saw the first snowfall yesterday in Yuzawa and it was coming down to fairly close to town as well... lower slopes of the resorts at town level were going white for a short time there.
It got really quite cold on Tuesday evening with some heavy rain falling late into the night but obviously that turned into snow at higher elevations leaving us with that good sprinkling yesterday morning.
Conditions quickly improved during the day yesterday and we had a spell when it was quite sunny with some blue skies on show in the afternoon.
This morning we are back to wet and rainy conditions. Unfortunately the snow has quickly retreated back up the mountains and now there's not much left other than high up on the upper mountain areas.
It was great to see that first snowfall though.
More rain forecast for the rest of today and into tomorrow and indeed it looks like we will be seeing generally cloudy conditions with rain from time to time into next week. Read more ...
