Morning from Yuzawa.

In my report yesterday I was saying how it felt like it might be one of those days when it clears up and turns into a fine day.

Well, that wasn't what happened!

It actually started snowing - and quite heavily for limited periods - and the snow clouds stayed over us for most of the day. It was great to see it really coming down at times, though it didn't really stay heavy for long.

There were some decent conditions to be enjoyed as well. I spent a few fun hours up at the Kagura resort where there was obviously much less snow than usual for mid-January but some decent snow to be found.

Resorts around the area this morning are not reporting any new cm of snow overnight but there was definitely some during the day and I measured 3cm of it here in town.

So what about this heavy snowfall that we have been expecting early week?

It's still looking good to be arriving. Just what kind of snowfall we get and how much... well let's just leave it to nature and see what happens.

One thing the forecasts do agree on is that tomorrow will probably be quite mild and there's a good chance that we will get rained on here in town during the day before the 'main event' arrives. The 'main event' (snow) looks due around Tuesday/Wednesday. Here's hoping!
