Hello and good morning from Hakuba.

There's not much to say this morning - beautiful start to the day and warm conditions are expected. I wonder how warm it will get. 15C+ at base?

Tomorrow (a national holiday in Japan) will likely also be warm with the chance of some rain, though perhaps not quite as warm as today and then colder still on Friday.
