Good morning from Yuzawa.

Just a dusting of snow overnight here in town and somewhat wet snow is falling at the moment. I see that while Maiko are not reporting any new cm this morning, Kagura are reporting 2-5cm and so it looks like higher up there has been a bit and it still coming down now.

Currently it is hovering around 0 degrees here in town.

The snow is probably going to dry up by this afternoon but more snow is possible again overnight tonight and tomorrow morning. Again, probably not much more than light snow so I wouldn't be expecting the cm to be piling up. (But perfectly prepared and happy if I am proved wrong!)

Tomorrow I'll be bringing you some interesting data that I have come across as well as looking back on the season so far.
