An improving day
26th February 2018
Visibility improved as the day progressed and the dry, cold conditions have continued to influence the area, cloudy over the summits in the morning then brighter in the afternoon. The summit temperature was minus 6.4 degrees celsius. Easterly winds were moderate to fresh at summit level and the freezing level was around 200 metres. The snowpack is still firm and very icy in many places with serious run-outs in the event of a slip or trip. Another good day in the West but with low mountain temperatures giving strong wind chill effect. New snow amounts forecast for tomorrow will be light and dry.
