Mild and windy again
2nd January 2022
Today was colder than yesterday. The freezing level was still above the summits and heavy showers were rain at all levels. There is little change in the remaining snow, it remains very patchy and continues to thaw.
The weather will change tonight and become more wintry, remaining wintry for the next few days. Hopefully the photos will soon start to look quite different!
Overnight the freezing level will fall and showers will turn to snow. Snow and strong winds mean fresh windslab deposits will develop in wind sheltered areas such as gullies, coire rims and crag aprons. These are not expected to gain significant depth and in many places will overlie bare ground. These fresh windslab deposits will develop on North through East to South aspects above 900 metres. Any remaining old snow patches will refreeze and be firm and stable.
