Well, the forecast was right so far - it's raining. Heavy rain at times.

Kagura is reporting snow, with Mitsumata reporting 'mizore' (sleet), Naeba and GALA Yuzawa reporting rain and other resorts at town level with rain. It is actually again mild this morning, currently 4 degrees, but that is forecast to drop as the day goes on and hopefully -- please -- it will be snowing by the end of the day with snow forecast for tonight and all of tomorrow.

So conditions won't be too great out there today, but if we can get some decent snowfall overnight tomorrow should be much better.

I plan to update this page again tonight with the latest....

Nighta tonight is at the following resorts in Yuzawa:
Naeba
Yuzawa Nakazato
Yuzawa Park
Iwappara

In Minamiuonuma just to the north, nighta at:
Ishiuchi Maruyama
Centleisure Maiko
Joetsu Kokusai

PM update:

It has been a day of rain and sometimes sleet here and unfortunately the rain is still coming down in town at the moment with snow reported higher up at Kagura.

There is good news though - the forecast has temperatures dropping (it's still a mild 4 degrees) and new snow is expected between now and tomorrow morning.

There seem to be conflicting reports concerning just how much we can expect. Kagura are saying about 10cm is expected. The local news just now had a maximium of between 20-40cm of fresh snow to fall in the area from now until 9am tomorrow morning. Lets hope for the latter!

So I very much hope to bring you some confirmed good news tomorrow morning....
