Good morning from Yuzawa.

Rain for the morning yesterday in town and spots of rain as it wore on later in the day.

Up at Kagura though, this morning they are reporting up to 5cm of fresh snow on upper slopes.

Lots of cloud around at the moment but it's dry. And perhaps we'll see some sunshine later on.

It's a chilly start - about 5C now - and temperatures are set to warm up again from tomorrow.

LATE SEASON REPORTING
The individual Now reports will continue in each area until the season in that place closes - some will continue daily until the end, some will become less than daily now that we are in 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.
