A bit of a wind blowing about yesterday afterno on and a generally fine day lower down with upper areas covered in cloud.

No new snow to report in Hakuba this morning though some upper areas got a bit of snow overnight - Goryu reporting 5cm of fresh.

This morning there is more cloud around and covering most of the mountains around the valley, though I can still get a glimpse of some blue sky from time to time above the clouds and some sunlight getting through at times as well. Variable conditions, but generally fairly poor visibility on the resorts especially higher areas this morning.

Nice and cold and about -4 degrees C mid morning here and the cold conditions will probably continue into tomorrow. Even without much new snowfall, keeping cold is what we need to keep the snow we have in decent conditions.

We can expect light snow showers on and off today, clearing up by tomorrow.

After that, things are looking rather dry for the coming week with hardly any snowfall on the radar at the moment and perhaps a lot of the sun - a pattern that does not seem particularly mid-January-like to me.
