Good morning from Hakuba.

After the decent weather in the morning, we got some light rain starting to fall later in the day yesterday... boooo!

But this morning that's far from our minds as we are being treated to a beautiful clear morning. Just before 9am it's 6C with the temps rising to maybe around 14C later on here at village base.

Blue skies and sunshine all around, and this fine weather is forecast to be with us for the next few days along with warm conditions.

Later on Saturday and Sunday rain is there on the forecast - could it perhaps snow at higher elevations perhaps? If we're lucky perhaps. Probably best to just expect rain.
