Good morning from Hakuba.

Yesterday I spent a few hours over at 47. There was a lot of cloud around with some light snow falling. It wasn't as busy as I thought it might be - maybe I was just lucky with my timing.

It's a lovely morning here. Lots of blue sky, sunshine and with just some cloud hanging on. It is going to be a fine day weather wise. A cold start but it should rise up to around zero during the day.

Tomorrow is set to be warmer and I might well be reporting rain before the next snow which is currently due later in the day Tuesday.

Have a good Sunday.
