Good morning from Naeba! It's a warmer start than it was yesterday, with the air temperature reading -4°C. There is little wind and the skies are mostly clear. Visibility is good and the pistes are well-groomed. The pistes which aren't groomed are still in fabulous condition, if a little tracked out. But worry not - another good dump of snow is forecast on the horizon for the next couple of days. For the remainder of today, we should expect the skies to remain clear until nightfall, when a small accumulation of snow is likely occur.

Looking forwards, we can expect light snow throughout tomorrow, yet clearing overnight on Thursday night. Temperatures are likely to stay around 0°C, with overnight lows no lower than -7°C. Friday is when the real action kicks off again, with moderate to heavy snowfall predicted to begin Friday afternoon and persist through until at least Monday morning. The wind will pick up somewhat to bring this moist block of air in, but forecast are predicting that this won't be as much of a problem as it was during "Storm Finn". Temperatures are expected to drop to below -5°C consistently for the latter part of the coming storm cycle.

Hareta!
