Good morning from Nozawa and an early report today.

The sun is out and there's blue skies up above - it's another fine morning.

Currently it's around 0 degrees here in the village and we are expecting temps to rise to about 6C or slightly more later on in the day.

More cloud is forecast for tomorrow but the sun should be with us again and warmer conditions; and warmer still on Sunday along with the good chance of rain as well. Not the best forecast for the weekend for sure, but Saturday definitely looks the better choice at the moment.

With the warmth forecast there's inevitably going to be snow melt going on this weekend especially lower down. Come on forecasts, be wrong!

(But be right about the chance of some fresh snow on the mountain come Wednesday next week!)

There are a few course closures (to the general public) in the coming days due to some ski races being held, as below:

Until today: the Yamabiko A course will be closed.
