It was mild overnight not dipping below 3 degrees here in the village and at 8:40am my thermometer is telling me it's 5 degrees. Temps are forecast to rise up to around 13C later in the day down here in the village. Obviously colder than that up top though at 8am the resort reports 4C up on the top Yamabiko area... so it's going to be a warm day again.

There's more cloud around this morning.

Unfortunately, rain is still on the forecast for tomorrow and it should be keeping rather warm though perhaps not as much as today.

Then on Sunday, it will be getting colder again and perhaps the chance of some snowfall even (better chance higher up on mountain than at base).

But Sunday looks like it should be better weather conditions than Saturday if you are planning a day over the weekend.

From Monday 21st March until Friday 25th March, the Yamabiko B Course will be closed to the general public as it is going to be used for a competition event.

LATE SEASON REPORTING
The individual Now reports will continue in each area until the season in that place closes - some will continue daily, some will become less than daily once we get into April.

Once the season has finished everywhere, we will be adding a general season wrap up to each of the reports, where we will also answer questions and comments that we regularly get sent. Some do keep on coming back! The end of season message will be up at the end of Golden Week in early May.

Thank you for reading.
