Good morning from Yuzawa.

Yesterday was a stunner of a day. Most of the clouds over the region disappeared during the morning leaving us with clear blue skies and bright sunshine. It was quite mild too. A fantastic day to be out skiing and snowboarding.

It didn't get that cold overnight and while it is an icy start to the day we are expecting things to warm up fairly quickly. And warm up a fair bit as well, perhaps even approaching 10C in town later on. We could definitely do without things warming up that much.

Anyway this morning has started with generally overcast/cloudy skies but there is some blue sky in places - while we may well get some clearer skies during this morning it is expected to be cloudy later on with precipitation due. With the warm temperatures there's a chance it will be rain down in town but hopefully overnight will be snowing particularly in higher elevations. Don't think we can expect much though.

Happily, tomorrow should be a return to colder temperatures again and clearer skies are forecast.

After another bit of a warm up on Sunday, the next snow is currently due around Monday.
