Happy New Year!

Here we are, 2018. Lots of regular heavy snow, please.

No fresh snow to report on this first morning (other than the 5cm that upper slopes of Kagura appear to be reporting).

Yesterday conditions were pretty good - especially in higher elevations. Unfortunately it was also quite windy up there and the GALA Yuzawa resort had to close.

There was a bit of dastardly drizzle last night at times so I hear (I stayed inside) and this morning it is kind of tying to snow though at times there has been some breaks in the cloud too and there's even some sun just to the north of Yuzawa now. It is keeping relatively mild, though not as much as yesterday. Not as windy either at the start of the day.

It feels like this morning we are in 'weather patterns are changing' mode.

Things are expected to be a little colder tomorrow and further still come tomorrow night and into Wednesday when 'heavy snow' is also on the forecast.

We'll have some of that, please!
