There were some really stunning views of a thick 'sea of clouds' hanging over the Minamiuonuma valley areas this morning, as the day started off with thick fog and low cloud.

That cleared to eventually leave us with more blue skies and sunny conditions here today... not as warm though with temperatures just about getting into double digits.

A bit of a wind starting up during the day and as of just before 2pm now I am hearing that Gala Yuzawa might be closing due to the wind conditions.

Currently it looks like we might not get as much rain as we have been expecting for tomorrow too, most likely it will be falling in the morning. Tomorrow will probably end up a bit warmer than today though.

After that a good chance of more rain early in the week and colder temps. but clearer skies are forecast mid-week onwards.
