Yesterday the clouds and rain/snow started to clear up around lunchtime and by late afternoon there was still a fair bit of cloud hanging around upper slopes but some patches of blue sky on show from the village and the lower slopes visible. It was snowing again up there in the evening though and this morning Hakuba Goryu is reporting 5cm of fresh snow on the upper slopes (0cm on lower). Hakuba 47 is also saying there is 5cm of new snowfall up there. More, no doubt, higher up further in the mountains.

It's a cold morning and light snow has still been falling on upper slopes early on but it is dry down here in the village at the moment... poor visibility on those slopes up there but signs are that things might be clearing up and it might turn into a decent afternoon. Clear skies and warmer temperatures are due tomorrow.
