Yesterday was a very fine day out on the slopes of the region. The sun was out from early on and did it's thing all day. Looking around the resorts did not seem busy at all but the people out there will have enjoyed the weather and the good snow conditions. It remained fairly cold throughout the day.

This morning it is still under zero (currently around -1) and 1-2cm of new snow on the ground in Yuzawa. It is snowing as I write this, but only very lightly. Snow is however forecast for the rest of the day and according to the forecast the cold front should be strengthening into tomorrow with snow forecast for throughout the day and cold temperatures once again.


PM update:

Well, it has been snowing for most of the day, but it has been very light and there is hardly anything to show for it down at town level - there was 0cm on top of the car this evening after a day outside. Right now it seems we are seeing snow to the north on the plains again ("satoyuki") rather than in the mountains, with a fair bit of snow falling in Niigata city.

A bit disappointing, but the good news is that we have 20-40cm forecast for the mountain regions tonight and so everyone is expecting some good news tomorrow morning. Tomorrow is still set to be a cold day and we can expect snow throughout the day. Fingers crossed!
