Morning from Yuzawa.

And after the fine (and fairly mild) weather that we had yesterday, rain clouds are over us this morning and it is mild, +6C at the moment.

It is actually fairly bright right now with just a few spots of rain - in some places it has stopped - but the forecast is generally for rain this morning and into this afternoon. Even higher areas like Kagura and GALA Yuzawa are reporting rain.

Good news is that it shouldn't be lasting long with snow due into tomorrow. There's not a whole lot of fresh snow on the forecast past tomorrow with more sun likely for a few days. (The important thing is that we want/need it to keep colder rather than warming up...)

It doesn't feel windy here in town but strong winds are forecast for higher up. Because of that the Tashiro Area of Kagura is closed today with just the Mitsumata Area opening at the start of the day. GALA Yuzawa and other resorts appear to be opening as normal, though there may be some lifts moving slower than normal at times.
