Yesterday got a bit wild at times. Strong winds during the day even down in town, leaving what was open at Kagura to scale back and eventually close by early afternoon. Late night saw heavy rain falling. Seems that there was heavy rain and bad weather in many areas of Western Japan yesterday.

Anyway the peak of that bad weather is now past us and the rain that was still falling early this morning has stopped this and it's just cloudy and a bit foggy now in Yuzawa. Lots of quite low cloud too but that hopefully will move on improving visibility. It's not as warm after yesterday.

From tomorrow the skies are set to clear and we have a run of fine and sunny days on the forecast.

We're not far off the start of Golden Week now and the weather is often fine and warm for that time of the year (sometimes borderline hot).

Here's how Golden Week is looking this year - there's a run of 5 days holiday from Saturday 2nd May until Wednesday 6th May, with the added bonus of Wednesday next week (29th April) also being a national holiday.
