After a lovely clear day yesterday, this morning I have some more snow to report. It's not quite as cold this morning as it was yesterday (-3 at the moment) but rather than clear and sunny skies, snow is falling from the sky with Kagura reporting 5cm of fresh snowfall and a few cm here in Naeba. It is still snowing now though today looks like it will be the last fresh until next week and so hopefully we can get some more cm to add to the thin new layer so far. What's falling this morning is not the fluffiest dry kind of snow, for sure. But snow all the same.

As we have been expecting, from tomorrow until around Monday milder temperatures are expected along with even the chance of rain on Saturday at base though hopefully it will be falling as snow on higher slopes. It should start getting colder again though once we get into Monday, with more fresh snow expected then. That's how the forecast stands at the moment anyway.

It has been a mixed March so far - warm and mild at the beginning but followed by that really great blast of winter earlier this week and a return to excellent conditions. Let's hope the second half of March continues to bring us some good surprises.
