Beautiful blue skies yesterday, and happily it didn't warm up too much during the daytime out on the mountains. Some dramatic looking clouds formed around the mountains later in the afternoon making for some impressive scenery. The days are getting noticeably longer now - it was still fairly light at 6pm yesterday evening.

The skies aren't as clear this morning and the blue skies on show aren't quite as blue. There has been some light snow falling in places until just before, but 0cm clocked on the meter and that seems to have eased off now. The forecast does tell us to expect clouds to clear during the morning though, after which we are going to probably click into that sunny and warm spring pattern for a number of days.

Snow conditions likely to be a rather sugary and moist down on lower slopes but keeping decent higher up.

Currently it is about +0 degrees here in the village, with the Usagidaira part of Happo at 1400m reporting a temperature of -3 degrees.

It still looks like it is going to warm up considerably in the next few days, with temperatures rising above 10 degrees around Thursday. The warm stretch is likely to continue until at least the end of the weekend.
