Those clouds did clear yesterday and by mid-morning we had beautiful blue skies to enjoy above Hakuba, a treat.

This morning we're back to cloud and it's not as cold as we expected. No new cm of snowfall to report. but looks like it's snowing higher up looking at the webcams.

Temperature forecast to rise to around +4 degrees later on today with a good chance of rainfall before the expected snow by tonight.

We should have a decent delivery of snow to be able to report by tomorrow morning so fingers crossed.

Early report this morning as I'm off to Nagano today so hope to bring good snow news in my next report.
