The blue sky didn't last long yesterday as by mid-morning the snow clouds had moved back in and it was snowing for most of the day. There wasn't much snow on the car at the end of the day really which was a surprise but I'm sure the slopes will have got another topup. Things were clearer last night but we awoke again to snow falling this morning and perhaps 10-15cm of snow to clear away. It is still snowing but a quick look at one of the Naeba webcams shows a bit of sun poking through again so perhaps another day of changeable conditions here in Yuzawa.

Things still look set to clear up somewhat tomorrow and we might see a clear and fine day, just some clouds hanging on.... and possibly fairly clear weather over the weekend as well.

Right now it is -2 degrees in Yuzawa.

Update:

Just an evening update today as I want to share what has been happening since this morning. Which is, basically, snowing and snowing quite heavily as well. There was 30cm or so of snow to clear off the SnowJapanMobile at 4pm this afternoon - that's new snow since 9am this morning - and it is continuing to come down. Things are looking suitably snowy and the mountains of snow piling up around town are now looking pretty impressive.

The local forecast has us receiving perhaps 20-40cm more snow between now and 9am tomorrow. Bring it on.

Got to say we weren't quite expecting such snowfall today, but it's always welcome of course.

Tomorrow looks set to be much calmer and perhaps even sunny. The local forecast is for the snow to ease off and be cloudy but surrounding areas seem to have a clear day forecast, so it might turn out to be one of those.

Whatever the weather will be, snow conditions will be top.

The report for tomorrow (Friday) will be online later on in the evening when we will also look forward to the weekend.
