Good morning from Yuzawa and it is a beautiful start to the day with clear blue skies. Can't say I was expecting it, but it is a nice surprise.

No new snowfall overnight but a few cm from yesterday added to the report today.

This may well be one of those calm-before-the-storm moments as it is forecast to be snowing by later this afternoon (rain first in town?) and then snow tomorrow and perhaps into Friday.

Should be a fantastic morning though!
