Good morning from Yuzawa.

Not the best of mornings though, I'm afraid. There has been some light rain early on - though it was holding off as I went outside just now - and as expected the chance of rain falling is going to loom over us today and tomorrow as temperatures rise to 8C and possibly even a little more in town.

Limited visibility on mountain by the looks of the webcams as we approach 8am.

Hopefully, we can get some snow out of this at higher elevations. All fingers crossed.

It's good to see some moderate-heavy snow now appearing on the forecast for early next week. We'll be in need of it to fresh things up.
