An early morning report today as we start a new weekend.

No new snowfall cm to report to you from here in town - even though at times yesterday it was snowing, but again not with much conviction for the most part - and the day has started with some grey cloud and blue sky. With the sun trying to break through especially just to the north of Yuzawa, it feels like it could be one of those days where it clears up and ends up being a fine day.

There will have been a dusting or slightly more of fresh snow on higher resort areas yesterday, though it was no doubt sliced up by keen skiers and snowboarders at the time.

I was looking through some photos of this time last year. Last year there was close to 3cm of snow around the back of my house and on the rice fields. Today, there's just a bit of snow on the ground. It's such a drastic comparison with last year which is the biggest shocker. For those of you less well up on the region, while we did get a particularly large amount of snow in the early season last year it's this season that is by far the furthest from the norm.

The storm that people are hoping will turn things round is still due early in the week. We might get some rain before it kicks in sometime on Monday, but from then onwards into at least mid-week snowfall is expected. And very hopefully we will get the sustained heavy snowfall that we are usually so used to around these parts.

For this weekend we can probably expect those cloud and possible clearer skies, though it shouldn't be warming up too much which is good.

More and better snow conditions can be found in higher resort areas.

Have a good weekend.
