Good morning from Naeba. It appears a little overcast this morning but as the sun rises up above the adjacent mountains the ski area is being lit up by it's orange glow, suggesting the dark skies are less cloudy than they initially appear. It's very crisp this morning, particularly compared to what we have experienced in the past few days, with the temperature at 7am reading as -11°C. This will have ensured the pistes remained frozen overnight, perhaps offering some fun morning corduroy for those who are ready to ski first thing. The forecast still implies we should expect snow and cloud throughout today, however, this is reliant on moisture-bearing clouds making it over Mt Naeba to Mikuni valley, which has failed to happen throughout this current patch of unsettled weather. In addition to this, the wind remains below 15kmph, meaning there is even less chance of anything of any size blowing into the valley.

Looking forwards, we should expect temperatures to continue to remain well below 0°C until after the weekend, which will be accompanied by possibly patchy cloud and precipitation. Temperatures rise dramatically early next week, with the wind picking up possibly on Wednesday, with this bringing some light snow. Currently, it looks as though Wednesday is the day to keep our eyes on!
