Hello from Hakuba.

The sun is out and we have blue skies and/or a hazy spring like feel depending on which direction you are looking this morning.

But overall it's another feel-good late spring morning.

That is not forecast to last though, with more cloud expected and rain from this afternoon.

It will still get rather warm before the rain cool things down though, with temperatures set to rise above 20 degrees again. Rain is forecast through the day tomorrow and then what happens on Friday still looks uncertain. Might we get some snow falling higher up on the mountains?

It will be interesting to see how that all unfolds...
