Blue skies and sunny
Hello and good morning from Hirafu.
This morning the sun is out and we are enjoying some lovely blue skies.
There is no new cm of snowfall to report from here at base - just a dusting since my report yesterday, though we can expect some new cm higher up on the mountains.
So yes the sun is out and it looks like it should be a fine day. After the calm of today, things are expected to get stormy and windy again from tomorrow with rain turning into snow by Wednesday.
I'll post another report when there is more snow on the ground.
