Morning from Hakuba, and it's rain this morning I'm afraid - rain also being reported from the upper slopes this morning as well. We've had enough rain for April so far I reckon... enough!

Very poor visibility most of the places that remain open early this morning.

Good news for weekend visitors though as the rain should be easing off soon (by lunchtime?) and by tomorrow we'll be enjoying clear skies and sunshine. That's what the forecast tells us anyway. Temperature might not rise to 10 degrees today but will break through and rise to up to around 15 degrees tomorrow afternoon. Sunday should generally be fine soon.

Here's to a fun full-on spring weekend.
