Morning from Hakuba.

Yesterday the clouds continued to clear leaving us with some bright sunshine and mostly blue skies in the afternoon. Lovely.

The skies have clouded over again by early this morning and light snow has started to lazily fall. We probably can't expect much during the day today but some forecasts are calling for potentially heavy snowfall overnight tonight, and then regular snowfall through the weekend as well.

There is just a light southerly wind this morning and all resorts look like they are opening as normal.

It has been cold overnight and it is a cold start to the day - so it should be a good morning!

It's going to be interesting to see how the next 24 hours turn out, and of course I will fill you in on that this time tomorrow. Lots of snow and it should be another great upcoming weekend.
