Good morning from Hakuba.

Yesterday was another fine spring day. It ended up not quite as hazy as it started but really warmed up -- and so too today. I feel like I have been talking about warmth quite a lot over the last month or so!

Less of a hazy start this morning with lots of blue sky and a bit of cloud. It is another fine morning. Rain is due later today though and that should cool things down later on and overnight.

That forecast still shows the chance of some snowfall over the weekend, especially in higher areas. There's a fair bit of rain on the forecasts too down at village level. I'm holding out for the chance of riding on some fresh snow once again. Come on Nature, you know you want to have one last spurt of winter-like conditions!
