Been very mild and sunny over the last few days and snow melt is proceeding rapidly, especially at lower levels. The fields on the plains are starting to lose their winter mantle but the mountain still has top to bottom cover.
Today is expected to get up into the mid teens and remain sunny but some rain is forecast to come in later tomorrow with cooler air coming through in it's wake. Thursday is expected to be quite cool and temps should remain below freezing on the upper mountain although most of the precipitation will have moved through so no snow is expected.
Beyond that fine and warmer weather will return to the region getting back up into the lower teens at village level.
By the end of this week most of the snow will have melted off the plains around Kutchan so the farmers can finally start sowing their crops meaning business at the local Pachinko parlors will drop dramatically. It's going to be nice though to finally see some green in the landscape again. It's great having the contrast of snow covered mountains rising above green fields. I love Spring!
