Good morning from Hakuba.

The sun stayed out yesterday though cloud did gather during the afternoon.

A lovely day though.

And it is another lovely morning here.

Lovely!

Theme of the day: lovely. :)

I wonder what is going to happen this afternoon though. Rain? Snow? Obviously we hope for straight into the latter, but it looks like there is a good chance we might get some of the former, particularly at lower elevations. It is certainly going to be warmer during the day today, with town level seeing temperatures up to around 6 or 7C.

Whatever happens later today though, the forecast still looks very nice from tomorrow with some decent snowfall expected.

I'll let you know tomorrow. Fingers crossed by then I'll be reporting fresh cm of snow on the ground.
