Good morning from Yuzawa.

Yesterday was a fine day weather wise and hearing varying stories on snow conditions - from decent to 'crusty'. A fresh layer would be most welcome... but isn't it always!!

This morning is once again showing us some varied conditions in a short space of time. When I got up it was sunny and the skies were fairly clear. I thought it was going to be a fine and sunny day. But then just a while back snow started falling and the skies have almost completely clouded over. It has gone from being sunny blue skies to grey over the period of about one hour.

Kagura is reporting 1-3cm of fresh snow by the way.

Snow is actually on the forecast for the day today though it's not going to be too cold so I imagine a bit on the wet side of things.

We're then expecting a few days of generally fine and sunny skies and happily they should be followed up by what looks like more snowfall due later in the week.
