Yesterday started off with those strong winds but things calmed down and cleared up by the afternoon which was good to see. Actually ended up with some feel good weather conditions in the afternoon.

There is quite a bit of very thin cloud around but it's generally clear, bright and sunny this morning over Hakuba.

Icy conditions to start the day with after a cold night (well, it sure felt like it), but things should soften up with the warming conditions as the day goes on. Expecting highs of +5 degrees in the village this afternoon.

Overnight tonight maybe some snowfall on the mountains with a chance of sleet or even rain down here. If that happens, I hope I'll be sleeping through it!

So it should be a good morning and I'm going to go check things out now.

Until tomorrow.
