Good morning from Hakuba and it is an early report today.

A bit of fresh snow falling on the mountains yesterday (Hakuba 47 reporting 5cm mid afternoon), but no new cm to report from base. It was good to get back to colder conditions though.

Sunshine is still expected today but early on there is a lot of cloud around and some fog too. Perhaps it will quickly clear up but it's not expected to warm up too much which is good.

More sunshine is forecast for tomorrow, along with warmer temperatures (perhaps up to around or slightly over 10C).
