The light snow continued for much of yesterday but it didn't really do much to bring us any new cm to report this morning. The mountains for the most part remained shrouded in cloud.

Hakuba Goryu wins the New Deep Snow Award this morning with 'up to 1cm' reported, easily beating the 0cm reported by the usual winner, Hakuba Cortina. ;)

It's one of those mornings when there's a bank of cloud hanging around the upper parts of the resort areas but above that there's lots of blue sky to be seen. I'd prefer to have gone up there to check for myself, but a quick look around the webcams shows grey conditions up on Happo, clearer on Hakuba 47 and fine views looking north from Hakuba Iwatake. Lots of blue sky looking at the cam up from Hakuba Minekata.

It's a nice cold morning and around -5C at the moment at village level. Hakuba 47 was recording a temperature of -12C up at 1450m as of 7am and currently it is around -8C at Usagidaira on Happo-one.

Snow is forecast to be falling again soon though today and then it seems that the snow clouds are going to be with us on and off over the next run of days possibly through until early next week. Look to Friday for potentially heavy snowfall, giving us a nice topup before the weekend.
