There was lots of cloud around yesterday and 'gas' too making for very limited visibility at times, depending on where you were of course. A bit of rain over at Hakuba 47 (when I was there), and then a bit of sun later in the afternoon. It kept pretty warm through the day and we are expecting more of that for today.

About 4 degrees currently at village level, so I would expect another spring-like day. Visibility improved on yesterday.

It might rain as well before the end of the day...

But! Forecasts are still looking very good for winter to take over proceedings as we go into tomorrow and possibly even through until the end of the week. If it all happens like we are being teased, late week and next weekend should be very good indeed.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves, one day at a time. Until tomorrow!
