Morning from Yuzawa.

I woke up to the sound of rain on the roof this morning. Not the best start to the day!

Happily, that has stopped and there is increasingly blue sky above us now. Good news about the rain and lets hope that holds off.

But it is going to be a warm day - temperatures here in town might well rise to around 10C. We are still due these warmer conditions for a few days, probably until Sunday.

Obviously that isn't going to be doing snow conditions much good.

Temperatures do look set to still drop back down from Monday and perhaps bring us a fresh layer of snow.

The GALA Yuzawa webcams still appear to be having issues. We'll bring those to you again once they are back up and running. Gambare, GALA!
