Yesterday those lovely blue skies didn't last too long as it fairly quickly became overcast and we ended the day with a grey cloud cover. It went down to about -1 degree overnight and this morning we start the day with just cloud. The forecast for the day is a chance of snow in higher areas and a chance of rain down in town. I'll post another report on this Yuzawa Now report page this evening with the latest on how things went today and how things are looking for the weekend...



Well, it hasn't been the best day today, though we have largely held off the rain. There has been a lot of cloud covering the mountains around town today and snow has been falling in places higher up, and at times spots of rain down in town. But nothing too damaging I don't think - it could have been much worse.

Let's look forward - the Niigata forecast that was published at 4pm tells us that this region can expect up to 15cm of snow between now and 9am. Then again, Kagura is calling for 'just a dusting'. It somehow feels like it is going to be touch and go how much we get tonight, but I would say that 15cm is sounding optimistic. Just keep that in mind!

So anyway weekend here we come. After the mild period we have had in recent days, come expecting early spring-like conditions in most places and you should be fine with having lots of fun.

We should be relatively clear over the weekend with a higher chance of sun on Sunday.

You might want to try and avoid Monday or Tuesday though as it looks like we are going to be hit with rain early in the week.

Anyway, have a fun weekend!
