Good morning from Yuzawa.

What a beautiful morning yesterday! Clear blue skies and sunshine.

It was fairly mild, rising to around 6C and softening up the snow, and gradually getting cloudy later in the day.

I was woken up just before 2am this morning by some very strong winds - and also unfortunately the sound of rain. Thankfully, it is snowing now as of 7:30am. If I had slept through I may not have known about the rain, though now that I know I can notice that there's less snow on top of my shed this morning.

Kagura are reporting 5cm of fresh snowfall and Maiko Snow Resort are reporting 'a bit' (without a number). Just a think layer around town.

Anyway though it wasn't particularly cold overnight, without the sunshine it should be generally be colder than yesterday during the day today and not rising too much above zero.

The roads are generally looking wet and the snow looks more wet than light, dry and fluffy; but it's certainly better than rain and hopefully we might get some more during the day.

We can probably expect some sunshine during the day tomorrow; forecasts say in particular later on in the day.

And then back to snow over the weekend and colder conditions too so hopefully we can get some nice quality snowfall.
