Good morning from Hakuba.

It started raining during the day yesterday. Rain is always an enemy of the snow of course, and definitely so at this stage of the season when it's already melting away.

But hold on!

We still have snow forecast this weekend. It's there on the forecast - will it be here in reality? I'm excited at the though of some fresh up there.

Cloudy for the moment and feels a little colder than yesterday. Rain due sometime today to be followed by that snow.

I will of course bring you the latest in my report tomorrow morning.
