Hakuba Snow Report – 19th Feb 2012

Weather conditions: Sun, blue skies, some cloud
New snowfall: few cm (village)
Snow depth: 150cm (Village); 335cm (Top of Goryu)
Well today has so far been a fine day. Lots of blue sky and varying amount of cloud up there but generally very bright and great visibility out there. It was very cold overnight last night (down into minus double figures even down at village) but has since warmed up and it is about -2 degrees now this early afternoon.Tomorrow looks set to be a clear and sunny one, perhaps with less of the remaining cloud that we have today and it might get milder too venturing into positive number territory. Shouldn’t be as cold tonight as well. We should actually see our fair share of the sun this coming week, especially in the first half and it will remain mild as well – look for Wednesday and Thursday to be the warmest for a while before hopefully things getting colder for next weekend.
