Good morning from Yuzawa.

And there is good news too!

Check this out...

Kagura is reporting 20cm of fresh snowfall at Mitsumata (looks more like a 4-5cm around base areas), and 10cm at both Kagura and Tashiro areas.

How about that then? I would imagine that GALA Yuzawa also has a fresh layer up there too.

Down in town the beautiful morning yesterday went rather dull in the afternoon and then rain started. Heavy rain at times and some impressive thunder and lightning too. A dusting of snow down to close to town but right now it is not snowing or raining; rather just cloudy and the forecast is telling us to expect clearer weather by this afternoon. In fact there's a bit of blue sky to see in some places even now.

Head high for that fresh snow!

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.
