Yesterday morning was quite possibly the clearest blue sky weather we have had all season. A truly beautiful morning. A tinge of overcast feel later on in the afternoon but still clear and sunny. Felt warm too. Snow conditions around the area better the higher you were as you might expect but still I spent some time lower down and had a good morning... it just felt a bit like spring!

This morning the sun is out again. Not as clear as yesterday with some wispy cloud around but generally sunny, bright and another fine morning on the cards. Temperatures today might rise to close on 10 degrees later on.

Feels like a light breeze to me down here, but I see the Tashiro part of Kagura will be closed today and Mitsumata open from the Ropeway to the Kagura Number 1 quad, and it also looks like GALA Yuzawa is closed today....so obviously some stronger southerly winds higher up.

That rain we were expecting seems to have been pushed back a bit and due tonight and into tomorrow morning. Less than originally expected? Maybe. That would be good.

So anyway yes, a fine day looks to be on the cards today. Sunny and very mild indeed.

Resorts will no doubt be very busy again today. There were lots of people around yesterday and with a few resorts closed today the people who were planning on going there will be checking out other places.
