Good morning from a very blustery Naeba! The air temperature is reading -5°C, but there is a strong wind accompanied by blowing snow meaning that the wind chill will be significant today. The accumulation of new snow is a difficult figure to report, as with this wind, the snow is falling in all directions and being blown about after deposition. Many lifts are on standby due to the wind, with just the chairlifts at the bottom open currently. The wind will hopefully ease off into this afternoon, however it isn't expected to fully blow out of the valley until tonight. Air temperatures are predicted to stay below 0°C throughout today and overnight tonight. The pistes will have windblown fresh snow, which will be accumulating far quicker on the leeward (southern) faces.

Looking forwards, the forecast is still very changeable. Tomorrow is predicted to be a sunny, clear and calm day, with air temperatures somewhat above 0°C. Sunday is predicted to be rather anomalous, with air temperatures pushing up even higher, to 13°C in the daytime at the base. There will be little wind to cool down the 'feels like' temperature, and the sun is forecast to be blazing down on us. On Monday, the warmer temperatures continue, accompanied by some rain in the afternoon, which turns to snow as temperatures finally drop on Monday night. The amount of snow forecast is changing regularly, so we will have to wait and see what is in store for us closer to the time.
