Good morning from Hakuba and it's a fairly mild and cloudy start to the day.

Yesterday was a real beauty. Deep blue skies, bright sunshine and just a bit of cloud here and there for most of the day. It eventually got cloudy with them covering the mountains late afternoon and we have had some snowfall overnight.

Resorts around the valley are reporting up to 10cm of snowfall - as noted in the areas below where that information is available - and there's up to 5cm on the ground here at base this morning as it eases off.

Back to this morning and cloud hanging around and the last of some light snow lazily falling early on. A few areas of blue sky are already showing through from behind clouds and we're basically expecting a fine day here again with more sunshine today.

Looking ahead, tomorrow's forecast is for warmer temperatures - rising up to around 6 degrees - with the chance of rain going into Tuesday. With temps dropping it should be turning into snow; straight into snow on upper slopes.

I'll let you know how that goes.

In the meantime, should be a fine day today. Enjoy!
