Yesterday was an interesting one. By mid morning things were looking nice and settled with breaks in the cloud and some blue sky... and even some sun. I left for a day trip to Nagaoka City to the north but soon headed into some very dark grey clouds and some heavy rain as well. The weather was nasty up there. Returning back to Yuzawa last night and it was raining heavily here too so obviously a few changes to conditions yesterday.

This morning there is lots of cloud about over Yuzawa - a few breaks in the cloud over Minamiuonuma just to the north - and it is not raining at the moment. The Snowline on the mountains around town is looking similar to how it was yesterday morning I'd say and higher up the open Kagura resort area is reporting 5-10cm of fresh snow, so obviously it was snowing at higher elevations.

The main run at Kagura remains open as it was yesterday and apparently there were quite a few people up there enjoying it yesterday.

Currently it is about 5 degrees here in town and probably won't rise much above that.

Tomorrow through until around Wednesday the forecast tells us to expected slightly warmer and calm conditions with a good dose of sunshine. We probably can't expect any snowfall even at Kagura until at least towards the end of the week.
