Good morning from Yuzawa.

After a day of snow falling for the most part there was just 2cm of snow measured early evening, but another nice thick layer of snow on the ground this morning. I am measuring 27cm, giving me a total of 29cm since yesterday to add to the report this morning. A very fine start to a Monday morning.

Kagura are reporting 20cm and so are Maiko Snow Resort.

As for the forecast, the current moderate snowfall might ease during the day but there snow clouds will likely remain over the region - with some more heavy snow due tomorrow night into Wednesday.

We haven't seen much sunshine since the heavy snow started in the last week of December. The next clearer day is probably going to be Thursday if you want some sun and snow. With heavy snow due on Wednesday, conditions on Thursday should be excellent too.
