ORIGINAL REPORT

Good morning from Yuzawa.

Yesterday was a beautiful day. While it was sunny from early on it took until early afternoon for the clouds to completely disappear leaving us with clear blue skies.

Things warmed up in the afternoon but it was cold at the start of the day with snow conditions keeping pretty good - and hearing of some very nice conditions especially higher up.

This morning is noticeably milder early on - it's +1C as I write this report. Temperatures are forecast to rise to around +8C later on this afternoon and if the local forecasts are correct warmer still tomorrow (with rain still a real possibility later on).

So we're going through a stretch of milder conditions; fingers crossed we can get back to more winter-like cold by the end of the week.

There is a lot of cloud around, and note the wet road surface on the Route 17 webcam image below, but with the chance of some clearer skies later on - indeed, some blue sky now appearing just to the north in Minamiuonuma.
