Good morning from Yuzawa.

Yesterday could have been much worse as the rain held off at times, though it was with us on and off - with some heavier rain heard on the roof late night.

Temperatures shouldn't be as high as they were yesterday, though still in positive numbers with a high of around 5C expected this afternoon.

You might notice the official snow depths mostly being reduced by the resorts as well. Snow cover isn't an issue though... more important is a layer of fresh snowfall. This morning I notice that Kagura are reporting up to 3cm of fresh snow and light snow falling early on, though there's none to report down in town.

When can we expect that fresh layer of snow? Well, if the forecasts are right perhaps it will be around Monday when that next wave of snow clouds delivers anything significant. Before then, a mixed up line up of sun, cloud and possible rain and/or snow showers is forecasted.
