Updated below

Cloudy for the day yesterday with a moderate wind blowing at times and even a spell when there were a few spots of rain falling - luckily that didn't last long.

This morning it's cloudy once again and a noticeable wind. I see that wind is affecting Kagura with the Tashiro Ropeaway closed for the day and Mitsumata open up until the Kagura Number 5 lift. Naeba also seemsa to be reporting a few spots of rain, but it's not raining here in town and it certainly doesn't seem like anything significant...

Updated: GALA Yuzawa also closed due to the windy conditions.

It's going to warm up a bit more than yesterday according to the forecast.

I think we have all had quite enough of this somewhat prolonged blast of spring in late February and really want something like winter to come back and bless us with fresh snow.

Tomorrow looks like it should be the day. Maybe rain again late today before snow but tomorrow snow is forecast for the day... and more on Sunday too.

All fingers crossed!
