A good morning to you from Hakuba.

So yes it was a beautiful day yesterday and places seemed to be pretty busy too. No doubt that news of fresh snow brought some more people out.

This morning there's more blue sky but it is forecast to cloud over later in the day and it might be raining overnight. We might even get some snow before tomorrow morning.

Expect some fairly hard conditions this morning, but it should soften up as it warms up (to over 10C in the village) this afternoon.

Snow cover has pretty much disappeared from many village level areas now - no doubt farmers will soon be getting prepared for their busy spring season. There is still a lot of snow on the mountain though with resorts generally reporting 2.5m. Let's hope that is enough for the upper slopes to be open until early May. Can't quite believe that is 2 months off... this year 'spring' is going to seem very long!

BUT! BUT! Perhaps we will get some more snow. The forecasts show some promise which is really good to see.

I wonder what nature will decide to give us.
