Hello from here in Nozawa where we have no new snow in the village and the resort reporting 1cm again up top. We're going to need slightly bigger numbers than that...

The weather the last few days has not been kind to the snow and snow conditions as you may well expect.

This morning there is a lot of low cloud and 'gas' around - visibility is better on the upper Yamabiko area than it is down here near base. Cloud is forecast for today and it will be colder than it has been... you can feel that early on. There is just a slight northerly breeze at the moment. Fingers crossed snow will be falling tonight and I will have some numbers to report to you in my report tomorrow.

Things are looking up. The forecast is good for snowfall tomorrow and then a very good weekend and early next week is likely. Temperatures are going to drop to something more like what we expect in January.

Don't be fooled by the last few days, it looks like a real change is on the way. :)

Everyone is highly expectant and in no mood to be disappointed; hopefully by the end of the weekend the situation will be very different to the current one.
