Morning from Yuzawa.

Unfortunately, it's not a particularly nice one. Rain has been falling since yesterday evening and it has been a bit foggy in places too early on.

It looks like it is even raining up at Kagura, so there's no escape from it at the start of the day.

The rain should ease up this afternoon.

Hopefully tomorrow things might be nice - forecasts seem to say there's a chance of some sunshine, but there's also the chance of rain too. Let's see how the forecast develops by the end of the day.
