Good morning from Yuzawa.

On some days the snow seems to build up quickly almost without you noticing and on others it snows and you are puzzled when there's not as much as you thought. Yesterday was one of the latter - I was surprised that there was only 9cm to clear off the measuring point at 5pm. This morning there was around another 2cm on there, so 11cm in total to report since yesterday morning.

This morning has started off with fine mostly clear skies and some sun shining down on Yuzawa but it is already looking like clouds might be starting to move in. Forecasts have us down for some spells of fine sunny weather this morning but just how long it will last remains to be seen.

It has been a fairly chilly start to the day but temps are forecast to rise somewhat today - maybe as high as around +6C this afternoon - but it is due to be snowing again by tonight and through tomorrow and it should be once again getting colder.

Feels quite windy but all resorts appear to be planning on opening as normal.
