Good morning from Hakuba.

It was a beautiful day yesterday with a bit of thin cloud here in places but mostly just lots of blue skies and sunshine.

This morning there's just a dusting on the ground. I see that Hakuba 47 are reporting 5cm of fresh snow but Cortina not reporting any.

It is forecast to be mild today with temperatures rising to around +6C later on this afternoon. While it has been snowing early on, we'll just have to hope that precipitation holds off rather than get rained on, but that rain is still a distinct possibility.

The forecast remains good for snowfall tonight - especially at higher elevations - and tomorrow.

Early season can be a bit of a ride, we just need to be patient for nature to do it's thing.

In the meantime it appears that resorts remain open as per yesterday.
