Good morning from Yuzawa on this first day of March.

And unfortunately it has been a rather dodgy start to the month!

I was woken up by very strong and wild sounding winds a few times overnight along with the sound of heavy rain on the roof as well. It was noticeably warmer too. Temperatures today will be getting into double digits and perhaps as high as around 13C in town. (It's already 8C).

Just at the moment as I am writing this report, it suddenly seems a little calmer and the rain has eased off. But strong winds are forecast during the day and we probably haven't seen the last of this rain either. We can hope for the best - some local forecasts even show some clearer skies due later on in the day.

It looks like the Yuzawa Kogen resort is not opening this morning due to the weather conditions and only the Mitsumata area of the Kagura resort will be opening this morning. The Gondola at Maiko Snow Resort is also looking like it will be delayed opening (probably by about half an hour). If the winds do whip up more, we might expect some other lift disruption.

I suspect that lots of people will be giving today a miss and maybe taking a soak in an onsen. Snow conditions are inevitably going to be affected by what we were served overnight. But looking on the positive side, the slopes should be uncrowded!

Tomorrow should be colder with the chance of snow falling.
