Good morning from Yuzawa.

Fine weather yesterday. It felt a bit windy at times.

This morning there's clear blue skies over the region. The sun is out, it is mild and temperatures might warm up to close on 20C in town later on this afternoon.

Things will likely cool down again tomorrow and we might get some rain at times - wind might well be a factor tomorrow too.

Tomorrow is a national holiday by the way, so it's a long weekend for many.

Some planned closing dates for ski resorts have been added to the details below.

Note that they are 'planned' closing dates. With lower snow numbers than usual and warm conditions, there is a high chance that those dates will be changed - as has happened with the ski hills already closed. We'll keep an eye on this information each morning and bring you news as it happens.
