Lunchtime yesterday and it was raining in the village, with temperature rising to around +3C, though it was snowing as you got higher up.

Hakuba 47 yesterday said that 3cm of snow fell on the upper slopes during the day time and this morning the number stands at 15cm on the upper slopes. Similarly Goryu are saying up to 20cm on upper areas, but nothing down at base.

So it probably goes without saying - head higher for the snow conditions. People talking about spring like conditions in January is not good but like I said there are usually one or two blips in a season. But January as a whole has been on the dry side. We are just hoping that February will be the comeback month.

OK back to the forecasts. We might see the clouds clear today and even a bit of sun. Sun tomorrow morning at least, and then warm and rainy on Sunday. But come Tuesday things are looking more interesting. We should be having a return to very cold conditions and snow falling. Let that be the start of a great February.
