We escaped rain during the day yesterday and instead enjoyed lots of blue sky and sun again, more cloud than yesterday but a fine sunny day.

And very warm. Very warm.

The temperature on the sign at the side of the Route 17 said 12 degrees in Ishiuchi and 11 degrees in Yuzawa when I went past in the afternoon. It felt very spring like. I hear that temperatures even got as high as 19 degrees in some parts of Niigata Prefecture.

A fun day though, once you accept the spring-ness of the conditions. Lots of resorts very busy too over the weekend.

More cloud did turn up last night though and light rain was falling last time I was outside. It's still falling now but forecast to clear up this morning leaving us with a cloudy day. We seem to have managed to avoid the prolonged heavy rain that was on the forecast last week. Still, not the nicest of early mornings to be out, let's hope the rain eases off quickly.

It's another mild morning though it won't be warming up as much as over the weekend.

Looks like it should be gradually getting colder this week with the next decent snow maybe around Friday. Until then a mix of cloud, possible light rain and light snow if we are lucky.

Less wind this morning and all resorts look set to be open as planned.
