Good morning. Yesterday ended up being another generally mild day with the sun finding a way through the clouds and a few spots of rain in the evening. The local news said that temperatures rose to above 8C in the day - that's more like early March than mid January.

And so, it's Friday again... already. Too fast! Of course, this week hasn't been a good one in terms of snow and conditions but we can now positively look forward to some much better snow news in the first part of next week.

Yes, the forecasts are looking much better at the moment. And this time, instead of snowing in the plains and cities to the north it should be snowing right here over the mountains. Apparently it might be the strongest winter front of the season. Nice. Loads of snow please.

Until then, we are expecting some clearer skies and maybe some sun here later today. It is definitely colder this morning. Early on it is cloudy and the roads are wet - GALA Yuzawa, Yuzawa Kogen and Maiko are reporting light snowfall; and it looks like there is a bit of fresh snow on the road up by Mikuni/Tashiro Ropeway.

The clouds will probably clear up though during the day today with that chance of clearer skies later on.

Sunshine is expected tomorrow morning.

And perhaps a little snow on Sunday.

And then... some proper decent snowfall from around Tuesday!

Let's hope we get some major snow action.
