As we expected, more of the same this morning. Third day now for clear and sunny skies. Another chilly start but again will warm up to around 8-9C degrees in the village this afternoon. Tomorrow is forecast to be slightly warmer still with temps rising into low double digits though more cloud is expected... and rain later on in the day.

Snowfall at higher elevations on Friday?

Let's see...! For now though it is another beautiful day here in Hakuba.
