Good morning from Yuzawa.

Thankfully yesterday the rain did ease off but it was rather windy at times especially in the afternoon. A bit more rain and snow at night but this morning the roads seem dry.

As of 7:30am it is a mix of clear sky, sunshine and a bit of cloud over Yuzawa. It is quite windy still though, but the wind does not seem to be affecting planned lift operations at the start of the day so everywhere should be open.

It seems that - for now at least - the more winter-like weather is coming in from the west and tracking over the region to the north of us, missing the Yuzawa and Minamiuonuma region.

What do we have in store? Hopefully those snow clouds will come back over our region and it will be snowing by tonight (or sooner).

With the milder and wetter conditions we have been having, I'm sure that the ski runs around the area could now be doing with a good fresh layer of snow to freshen things up.

For this morning, I would expect the better conditions to be found higher up. Hopefully by tomorrow they'll all have that extra layer.
