Good morning from Yuzawa.

Just after I posted the report yesterday, it got rather cloudy. And then it started clearing up again by mid morning and it ended up being a fine day, though never totally clear. As I was driving down route 17 in mid afternoon the temperature panel said +3C.

I had a really good few hours yesterday morning; the snow was in really good condition.

This morning it is cloudy and I can't see much of the mountains and there's some light snow falling and a slight dusting on the top of the car; a few cm in places. It is noticeably not as cold this morning as it has been in recent mornings, though if the forecasts are correct the temp shouldn't be rising much during the day. (Early in the coming week, we can expect warmer conditions...)

Maiko Snow Resort are reporting 5cm of fresh snow with Kagura reporting 1cm. The latter are also saying that they expect some stronger winds later on.

So, light snow forecast for the day into tomorrow morning.

Have a good Saturday.
