Morning from Yuzawa.

Yesterday was one of the 'best forgotten' kind of days in a season in terms of weather at least. The light drizzly rain continued on falling longer than hoped during the daytime. It was foggy as well with generally visibility poor. It certainly was colder than the weekend which is a good thing to take from it.

This morning there is a lot of cloud around but just to the north of Yuzawa there's blue skies opening up and the sun making an appearance. Forecast is for cloudy conditions but perhaps the skies will clear somewhat.

Similar conditions on the forecast for tomorrow.

It looks set to keep on the mild side for the next few days still with snow (bit more rain beforehand at base?) around Thursday into Friday.

Until we get some fresh snow, it's going to be mostly spring-like conditions out on the slopes with the better conditions higher up.
