Back below zero on the mountain in Nozawa

by Mark on March 20, 2016

Base at top: 120 cm

Temp at Top: -4 Degrees

Base at Uenotaira: 55cm

New Snow since close: 0 cm

Weather: cloudy, chance of snow this afternoon, low visibility

Looking very cloudy in Nozawa today

Temperatures have dropped considerably overnight; from 4 degrees yesterday to -4 today. The skies are looking fairly cloudy all round and temperatures will continue to fall throughout the day reaching a low of -8°C up the top this evening. Unfortunately the forecast has been downgraded, though they’re still predicting a few centimetres of snow for today higher up on the mountain, while lower down may receive some rain.

Looking ahead into the week, it seems like things will be improving from Tuesday night. Temperatures will stay fairly low throughout the week with snow falling on Tuesday night and becoming heaviest on Wednesday night. Light to moderate snowfalls should be fairly consistent during the second half of the week, with mild to no winds for the most part of the week. Get your snow dance on, some late March snow is just what we’re hoping for!
