Things got warmer during the day again yesterday, softening up those early icy conditions and leaving us with another fine weather spring-like day.

There's no new snow to report from around the valley this morning.

It's a fine morning with lots of blue sky and a bit of cloud here and there; and quite a lot of cloud around the mountain backdrop.

Current temperature in the village is +1C and today it's forecast to rise to around +6C.

Forecasts show snow falling in Hakuba by this evening and enough to give me hope of being able to report some numbers tomorrow morning. After tomorrow still chance of snow around Friday as well which would be good in the run up to the weekend.
