Overcast morning, then wet

3rd April 2017

After an overcast morning it started to rain steadily at lunchtime.  The surface of the snowpack is quite firm, and most of the snow remains on North to East aspects above 900 metres.  At summit level the rain felt sleety and  the Southerly wind was gusting to gale force making it very chilly.

We’re expecting a colder, dry day tomorrow with strong Westerly winds.

The broken ribbon of snow just left of the centre of the North face of Stob Dearg is Crowberry Gully.

Just enough visibility to see there’s not much snow left in Coire nan Lochan.

The view West down Glen Coe catches the flavour of the day before it started raining.
