It is another typically bright, sunny start to the day here in Yuzawa and all is calm with hardly any wind at all. At the time of writing it is about 10 degrees in town with a high of 14C forecast for later on in the day.

In a previous report I mentioned how much snow there was still around even down at town level and how it hasn't warmed up as much and as quickly as it usually does. It's definitely continuing that way at the moment as quite a lot of back roads that are usually well clear by now still have a significant amount of snow on them and are still blocked. While there are some patches in the snow appearing - usually with the help of digger machines breaking up the snow - there is still almost complete snow cover on all of the resorts around town top to bottom. That's really impressive for mid-April and I can remember some years when the snow line has been way higher than it is now.

It does look like temperatures are going to be rising over the next few days and we might even hit 20 degrees before the weekend. Generally it should be weather conditions similar to what we are seeing at the moment.

Still chilly up top early in the morning though - earlier on at 7:30am Kagura were reporting a temperature of +3C.
