Hello from Yuzawa.

After a generally fine day, increasing cloud later on and some rain in the evening in places, this morning it is basically cloudy. That forecast for snow today has been scaled back since yesterday and now it just looks like there is a chance of some light snow around lunchtime or early afternoon. Nothing major. And let's hope it will be cold enough for snow...

Oh yes, Kagura are reporting 2cm of fresh snow overnight but in terms of fresh snow that's about it.

There's an impressive looking sea of clouds hanging over the Minamiuonuma region just to the north of Yuzawa - you can see it on the webcam image from Ishiuchi Maruyama (see below).

Anyway, have a good Saturday and see you tomorrow.
