Warmed up again yesterday. And it'll be another warm one today, though the forecasts still say it won't be quite as warm.
Back to around 20 degrees tomorrow though.
Not much else on the forecast other than sun, sun and more sun for the week ahead. Varying levels of haziness probably - and today has started off pretty hazy here at town level. Typical for around this time along with a steady increase in temperatures. I remember sometimes over Golden Week feeling 'hot' rather than warm...
So today Kagura and GALA Yuzawa are of course open, and joined once again by weekend-only Naeba.
Oh yes, I forgot to mention - many of the cherry blossoms are looking good at the moment.
