Things are somewhat calmer this morning!

Yesterday some very strong winds started up from the afternoon and it was a bit wild out there during the night. Things flying around and some spots of rain as well.

GALA Yuzawa closed at 1pm due to the wind conditions.

But as I say, calmer this morning and mostly cloudy with a few very small patches of blue sky at the moment. More over Kagura way by the looks.

Over the next few days mixed conditions are forecast - a mix of mainly cloud and rain if the forecast is right, with a bit of clearer every now and again. And maybe not quite as warm as it has been.

All of the ski resorts that plan to be open should be opening this morning.
