And a good morning to you from Yuzawa.

Yesterday it was trying to snow for lots of the time but it didn't really amount to much at all, and zero in terms of cm down in town.

This morning it is good to wake up to some fresh snow. And just over 20cm of it at our measuring points as well.

Fresh snow numbers from resorts are as follows:

Kagura: 20-25cm
Maiko Snow Resort: 15cm

(The very simple reason why we keep on mentioning the 'new snowfall' numbers from those two resorts is because they actually publish those numbers each morning - most resorts don't seem to. If there are some other official numbers that we are somehow missing every day, please do let us know and we'll be more than happy to report them!)

Anyway back to the weather. It was snowing just before but has eased off for now and it looks like the sun is trying to break through the clouds. Changeable conditions just at the moment, though snow to just cloudy is what the local forecast have for the day.

Tomorrow? Well it does look like it's going to get mild again and while snow is due later in the day, there's a good chance that we might get a bit of rain again... particularly at lower areas, higher areas might get straight into snow. Let's see.

Today should be a nice improvement on yesterday though in terms of snow conditions, should be fun!
