Hello from Nozawa where we start the day with cloudy skies.

Yesterday was warm. Today will be warmer.

Overnight temperatures got down to just around +2C in the village and it's forecast to rise to about 9 degrees today at base. There's going to be lots of melting snow around.

It remains to be seen when and how much rain we get - none at the moment - but we are still due to be rained on sometime today and tomorrow.

Once we get this unwanted warm spell out of the way though, a quick return to winter is promised, so much so hopefully in my report on Monday morning I'll be bringing you news of fresh cm.

From Monday through Wednesday snowfall is expected as well as some proper winter-like temps as well.
