Good morning from Hakuba.

Yesterday was a beautiful day. Blue skies, a few clouds here and there, hardly any wind... and warm. Hakuba 47 were reporting a temperature of 15C up at 1450m at 3pm!

No wonder we can see the remaining snow melting before our eyes.

Still, with only three days left to go now I think it's just a case of getting out and enjoying some last turns of the season and chilling out for most people. And they should be able to do that today as it should be another fine and warm day. Temperatures again expected to rise to low 20s.

The forecast is still showing some rain for tomorrow during the daytime.

Clearer skies should be back for Sunday.
