Good morning from Hakuba.

There was some (heavy at times) rain last night I'm afraid, along with blowing winds. Not the kindest of conditions to the remaining snow.

It's a warmer morning again and a pleasant mix of cloud with some blue sky and sunshine breaking through at times and in places. We're forecast more rain by the end of the day though, so a morning ride is recommended today. Still looking at the chance of some snowfall later tomorrow, so interested to see what happens there. It should definitely be colder tomorrow as well so come prepared for potentially more winter-like conditions.
