Good morning.

Fine weather yesterday if a little windy and warm.

This morning it's not very appealing, to say the least. It's raining and forecast to rain for the day... a lot.

(Looking for brighter sides, I am hearing that it is sleet in some places higher up, but that's still rather wet).

Not sure that there will be many people wanting to get out onto the slopes in these conditions!

Tomorrow should see a real improvement with sunny skies forecast and indeed the weather should keep quite stable going through into the weekend and into next week.

The bottom Toomi run at Hakuba Goryu has now closed and so it's just the top area there that remains open.
