As forecast, it's going to be a scorcher today. It was already nearly 20º in downtown Myoko before 9 a.m. and Suginohara is reporting that it's 11º there this morning. It's 10º at Akakura Onsen and the slopes are slushy. A bit higher on the mountain, Chuo was reporting 2º. Break out the suntan lotion and beach parasol.

Also as forecast, the temperature remained well above freezing overnight, with balmy breezes blowing in out of the southwest. There's no wind this morning and visibility is excellent, despite all the pollen and "yellow dust" in the air. The yellow dust is doubtless also contributing to the slushy conditions. On the bright side, the slopes aren't that crowded.

No snow in the forecast for the coming week and high temperatures still predicted for tomorrow, with a bit of rain tomorrow evening. Not a good prognosis.

Official resort snow depths:

Suginohara:
100cm
Ikenotaira:
105cm
Akakan:
190cm (at top)
Akakura Onsen:
142cm
Madarao:
140cm
Seki Onsen:
250cm
