So yesterday we started off with those lovely blue skies. As often happens some thin clouds started to form early afternoon and we ended up with overcast skies by the time the lifts had closed for the day.

This morning we have heavy looking grey cloud cover over Hakuba. Visibility seems to be pretty good though. And it's warm, as predicted. Right now it's +5C and we might well be looking at the temperature hitting 10C today and unfortunately rain is still looking likely, even on the resort slopes. We can just hope that damage is limited. Stronger winds likely later on today as well. As of 9am it is +2C up at 1400m on the Usagidaira area of Happo-one.

The positive to take from this is that temps are set to drop as we move into tomorrow and hopefully by the time I'm posting tomorrow's report, I'll be able to report snow. The forecast for all of tomorrow is snow, though I don't think we are expecting heavy snowfall conditions.
