The weather turned warm yesterday reaching highs of around 15C down in Minakami town. There was an emergency on the mountain which worked out fine in the end, great result. The snow was excellent in the morning and started to deteriorate around 1pm. Temps were above zero overnight and light rain fell for a couple of hours this morning.

From then it's been a fantastically clear but very warm day. Spring time in mid-Feb.

On the positive side, forecast heavy rain has been downgraded and pushed back.

A return to Winter temps and more agreeable freezing levels is now expected Monday night along with some snow.
