Good morning from Hakuba.

The sun is out and there's blue skies all around with just a few thin clouds here and there. A bit like yesterday really. During the day yesterday a few clouds appeared but it generally remained fine weather and rather warm out. I had to take a layer off.

Things got fairly cold overnight but today we are forecast another mild day. I would expect a few hard conditions first thing before it starts warming up.

From today through Thursday the forecast isn't looking very friendly at all... mild conditions (with Thursday looking the worst) and rain around then as well. Thursday looks like a day to avoid!

Come Friday things should be getting colder again and the forecast shows snow going into Saturday. Fingers crossed!

Today looks like the best day to be out this week before we start getting more fresh snowfall.
