It's a windy morning in Niseko and the wind is affecting the lifts at both Grand Hirafu and Annupuri early on, as noted below. Generally cloudy but a few spots of clearings in the cloud, but the main headline of the day is those winds. Look for a high of about 14C later on in the day and this evening there's still that chance of a bit of rain. Looks like we might escape that during the day though. Actually there's a chance tomorrow might also see these strong winds continue.

Clear and sunny conditions are currently forecast for the weekend.
