Good morning.

Sunny.

Well... so much for that tomorrow it might rain/snow thing. I'm pretty sure that is what I saw. For now, early on, it's clear blue skies. Oh well, that sure is better than rain!

It was windy at times yesterday but things are calmer this morning.

Yuzawa Now!

Wednesday 15th April 2020, 8:02am
Weather conditions: Fine and clear
New snowfall: 0cm
Snow depth: --
Good morning from Yuzawa.

Kagura is back open today.

Though they are still requesting folks from areas outside Niigata Prefecture (covered by the government emergency declaration) to refrain from 'unnecessary and urgent' visits. I'll just leave that there.

Anyway, weather wise it is going to be a fine day with clear skies and sunshine. Starting off with a bit of spring-like hazy kind of feel. We will also get some warmth that we have been missing the last few days, closing in on 20C in town.

Tomorrow probably won't be quite as warm and a mix of cloud and sun.

Looks like there is increasing chance of rain over the weekend and early next week.

Niseko Now!

Wednesday 15th April 2020, 8:14am
Weather conditions: Fine, cloud
New snowfall: 0cm
Snow depth: --
Good morning from Niseko.

There is more cloud around this morning but there is also quite a lot of blue sky and the sun is out.

It doesn't look like there is any snow on the forecasts now, so perhaps we have seen the last of it for the season. From later in the week in particular temperatures look set to rise a little more along with generally lots of sun.

Let's spring.

If you are here, of course.

Stay well.
