Busy day in Glencoe

16th April 2017

Plenty of people about in Glen Coe on Easter Sunday, most of whom seemed to be enjoying walking below the snow-line.  There had been some further snow showers overnight but by mid-day the snowpack was thawing at all levels.  The shifting cloud allowed some isolated spells of sunshine in the afternoon.

Falling temperatures overnight will firm up the surface of the old snow patches and the potential for serious run-outs onto rocks on steep ground persists.

Easter Monday is forecast to be generally dry with winds becoming fresh from a Northerly direction giving a chilly day.
