Yuzawa Now!

Friday 17th April 2009, 9:03am
Weather conditions: Rain, cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Rain this morning it is with lots of low cloud and fairly cool temperatures once again - right now, it's 8 degrees in town now with a high of just 12 on the forecast for today. Unfortunately that rain even up high in Kagura won't be doing the snow many favours.

The good news is that fine weather is still lined up for the weekend though - it should be sunny and warm both Saturday and Sunday.

Naeba Now!

Friday 17th April 2009, 9:21am
Weather conditions: Rain, cloud
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Poor visibility this morning with a lot of cloud and - unfortunately - rain falling both at the bottom and top of the mountain. It is cooler than it has been at around +4 degrees with only a very slight breeze. The rain should have done it's thing by hopefully early afternoon and clear up and good fine weather is forecast for the weekend.

Next update to this page on Monday - have a good weekend.

We will continue to make updates to this Naeba Now! page at least a few times a week, but from now on until the end of the season at Kagura the daily reporting from the Yuzawa area of Niigata will move over to the Yuzawa Now! report section, so remember to check out that page as well for the latest.   Read more ...
