Good morning from Yuzawa. So what's the news? Perhaps surprisingly, right at this moment the sun is out though there is still a lot of cloud around but it's a bright morning. We have had just a slight snowfall overnight perhaps a few cm in areas but certainly nothing major. It looks like it is sunny up at Naeba as well early on but Kagura is reporting 10cm of new snow and 3cm at Mitsumata.

The forecast that we keep mentioning is now on top of us and everyone is highly expectant that today and tomorrow we might be in for some heavy snow. 20-40cm is forecast between now and 9am tomorrow morning and more beyond that.

It's around +1 degrees at the moment.

We will update this page later on this evening with the latest.

Just as an extra note, yesterday saw some snowfall in Niigata city and other low-lying areas of Niigata prefecture. Such a waste to see the snow falling there and of course we feel left out but early season this often happens. Hopefully very very soon it will be doing the business here too.


Update PM:

Well it has been a curious day weather wise. The snow hasn't turned up in Yuzawa - and we have seen some pretty good weather actually. 'Good' as in blue skies and cloud... so, actually, bad! If that makes sense!

It looks like the areas to the north of Yuzawa are having snowfall today again and it just isn't quite coming down to this area yet. So when is this snow going to arrive? Forgive the overuse of the word, but, hopefully by the end of tonight it will be snowing here. 10-20cm is forecast for the mountain areas of southern Niigata. Compare that to the 20-40cm that is forecast for the regions to the north of Yuzawa and it looks like we will be repeating the pattern of the last few days. It looks like areas in the north of Niigata prefecture might expect even more.

Anyway, so hopefully we'll get that snow overnight and the forecast is still looking very positive for the next 3 days or so. More tomorrow morning...
