Good morning from Yuzawa.

The somewhat annoying news is that it is raining in town early this morning.

The much better news is that it is snowing at higher elevations and you can see snow falling on the GALA Yuzawa, Ishiuchi Maruyama and Yuzawa Kogen webcam images below. There's snow on the roads up beyond Kagura and over to Naeba too.

It will be snowing down here in town soon. Hopefully sometimes this morning, surely by afternoon.

Once it does get started we are due that few days of consistent and - at times - heavy snow.

There has been a lot of snow melt going on over the last week, so it's a good job we had huge amounts of it! After this spell of clearer and milder conditions it will be good to get back to seeing fresh deliveries of lovely snow. But be sure to prepared for some cold, snowy and potentially windy conditions tomorrow and Friday.

Anyway, tomorrow I'll be bringing you a much more appealing report... last one of the year!
