Good morning from Hakuba.

Brrrr, it's a very cold start to the morning.

No fresh snow to report overnight but there I have a bit to record since my report yesterday. I am not finding any reports of fresh snow from the ski resorts.

Things cleared up somewhat by the middle of the day yesterday with some blue sky appearing though some cloud remained.

Maybe some snow overnight tonight but beyond that we can probably expect some clearer weather over the upcoming long weekend (Monday is a national holiday). Next decent snow beyond that brewing up for around Tuesday, so let's keep an eye on that.
