Morning from Nozawa.

It's colder this morning after a very mild day yesterday; and thankfully less windy too.

I was actually in Nagano yesterday with my friend who does the Madarao Now reports, so we had a good natter and compared seasons and the ups and downs - a little concerned about news of warmth, strong winds and rain. Nozawa and Madarao are of course fairly close to each other but it doesn't mean that conditions are always the same. And of course their base is at a higher elevation than ours here...

But anyhow it was good to see a dusting of snow on returning this morning, and the resort is reporting 5-8cm of snow on the upper slopes.

It's mostly cloudy but some blue sky on show and the sun making brief appearances here and there. The forecast seems to indicate clearer weather. Tomorrow should be a little milder again with rain>snow currently forecast for Monday. A bit of a mixed picture for the coming few days then.

Lots of people around this morning and visitors in Nozawa to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Hope everyone has a great weekend.
