Good morning from Yuzawa.

A thin layer of snow overnight - I am measuring 3cm - and resorts are reporting similar amounts (Kagura are reporting 1-3cm and Maiko Snow Resort is reporting 5cm).

At the moment it is cloudy with some blue sky and light snow also falling in places around the area. It's not feeling particularly cold this morning but there's a bit of wind blowing at the start of the day, though all resorts appear to be planning on opening as scheduled.

Perhaps more snow and some more cm later on today and tonight and we can perhaps expect to see some sunshine during the day tomorrow.

Monday is a national holiday here and it seems it is going to warm up a bit with a good chance of rain. We could do without that, but the good news is that it shouldn't last long and be followed by snow from Tuesday.

In the meantime, the popular resorts will likely be crowded this long weekend.

Take care and have fun!
