It's colder this morning in Hakuba I'm happy to report.

We couldn't escape that rain yesterday. It wasn't the best day of the season, that's for sure. At 3pm, Hakuba 47 were reporting rain on the slopes and a temperature of +4C. If it were spring we might not have cause to complain but for early February it's not what we expect. Having said that most seasons do have one or two events like this and so it's perhaps something we just have to get through.

The rain of yesterday means that snow conditions will be unstable and wet. A very slight dusting of snow overnight reported at some resorts around Hakuba and Otari, but enough to cover up the icy conditions.

OK on to the more positive news! As I said it is colder this morning and we are back down into negative numbers, though later on it will likely rise to around +2 in village. -7C up at Usagidaira which is around 1400m above sea level, and a slight north easterly wind.

Lots of cloud around the mountains this morning and so visibility is variable depending on where you are. Here down in the village there is some blue sky appearing and the sun shining down in places.

Chance of light snow tomorrow on the mountains though it will be another mild day and there's a good chance it will be rain again down in the village areas. Tuesday onwards should see a return of more consistently cold temperatures in the region with snowfall forecast for Wednesday and Friday.
