What a difference a day makes
2nd February 2020
After yesterdays mild wet day it was much more wintry today. The freezing level lowered to around 500 metres and snow showers fell down to 300 metres, winds were fresh from the South-Easterly direction. It was then slightly drier in the afternoon with some clearer spells. The old moist snowpack is firm and stable. New snow accumulations are generally light but some shallow deposits of windslab have formed in wind sheltered locations, these are currently not significant. The greatest accumulations are on North-West to North-East aspects above 900 metres. The avalanche hazard is Low.
