Good morning.

The last day of February. Winter, or spring? There's a certain feel of spring in the air at the moment it must be said. Though another blast of winter would soon put us back into winter gear...

Yesterday didn't quite clear up as we thought it would with a fair amount of cloud hanging around for the day.

This morning, it was clear from the start. Lovely blue skies over Yuzawa and Minamiuonuma and as it's going to be rather mild once again. A beautiful day though and one where you just want to be outside.

So, any blasts of winter due soon? Looks like Thursday is the day when precipitation arrives, but as it is going to be relatively warm it will very likely be in the form of rain before turning into snow... with a snowy Friday forecast.

I think I mentioned this before recently but March can be very unpredictable. It can really click into spring mode, or we can have numerous of those blasts of winter and some very nice conditions. Or somewhere in between of course. It will be interesting to see how the March part of the season story goes.
