Damp and Mild with Avalanche Activity
7th April 2018
Much milder today with summit temperature of plus 1.5 degrees celsius. Isolated showers of light rain and drizzle at all levels and the winds were moderate from a Southerly direction. The freezing level was above the summits.
The snowpack continues to slowly consolidate in the mild conditions. However, wet snow instabilities still remain on steep aspects above 900 metres. These are mainly, but not exclusively, on North-West through North to East aspects. Avalanche activity noted today on Easterly aspects. At lower elevations the wet snowpack will be generally stable. Large cornices still exist, and these will be prone to collapse.
