Yesterday was a generally overcast day with some nice looking clouds making for some dramatic scenery in the evening above Hakuba.

It's a cloudy morning again above the village early on but very mild with a temperature of around 9C at 9am. Cloudy with that chance of a spot or two of rain later is what the latest forecast seems to be sayinf for the day, but from tomorrow we should be back to clearer skies and the sun warming things up. As we get into the weekend we can expect warmer temperatures in the village, perhaps even closing in on around 20 degrees.
