Yesterday morning the rain eased and visibility improved for a bit, but in the afternoon in many places the old 'gas' returned leaving us with generally poor visibility out on the slopes. I was up at Happo-one in the afternoon and there were some impressive sights at times.

This morning, it was cold early and it's much clearer. Well... it is now. Here in the village we started off with a lot of cloud cover, and it turns out it was once again a low-lying sea of clouds and folk getting up high on the first lifts will have enjoyed seeing that. It quickly dispersed and now the sun is out and there's some fine blue skies. Bit of very thin high cloud here and there.

It's around 6 degrees as of 9am and the local forecast tells us to expect it to warm up to about 14 degrees later in the afternoon.

We're expecting colder conditions tomorrow and 'precipitation'. It'll be rain in the village and at least on lower areas...
