A change for the Wetter.

23rd January 2018

Well the forecast said it was going to be mild and wet, and it was not wrong. Overnight the freezing level rose well above the summits, and heavy rain fell. This has stripped back the snow with the change being particularly noticeable at lower levels. I saw evidence of one wet snow avalanche off Stob Coire Sgreamhach from Stob Mhic Martin which is about 8km away. With some snow and slightly colder conditions forecast for the next few days, winter conditions should improve.

The West face of Aoanch Dubh looking a fair bit blacker than it did yesterday, which again was a fair bit blacker than the day before.

No shortage of water coming off the North Face of Aonach Dubh. Streams and rivers were looking pretty full today.

Meall a Bhuiridh and Creise looking very monochromatic today.

Looking North East towards the East end of the Mamores.

Wet! A stream breaks through the snowpack.

A pair of ravens spotted me and came over to investigate, and to play in the updraft from the craggy ground below.
