Good morning!

It's another damp morning in Naeba today. There are low clouds swirling about the peaks, but occasionally patches of brighter light cast onto the pistes, perhaps suggesting we can hope for this rain to clear into the afternoon. It rained heavily last night, consolidating the snowpack even further and creating a slippery surface layer of dense, moist snow. Fortunately, this is still glassy enough to produce some quick skiing conditions, despite the air temperature being above 0°C.

Looking forward, we should expect this warm weather system to clear out over the next 24 hours, perhaps even leaving us a little snow before it goes. Temperatures will be hovering around 0°C overnight tonight, before dropping below 0°C tomorrow evening. For most of the week, we should expect lighter winds and overall calm conditions, with a mix of sun and cloud. Monday is the day to keep our eyes on for now, with winds picking up and blowing in a fruitful cold and moist weather system. The heaviest snow is currently forecast for Monday night.

Shimetta!
