Mild conditions with drizzle.

It rained overnight at all levels this was followed by a relatively dry morning and the freezing level was above the summits. Persistent rain arrived in the afternoon falling to all elevations. The winds were fresh to strong from the West-South-West.

looking at the summit of Creag Dhubh 749 metres during a brighter spell this morning

The snowpack is moist at all levels and is moderately bonded on steep slopes with a North-West through North to East aspects mainly above 850 metres. Elsewhere to snowpack is generally well bonded. Cornices are unstable. The avalanche hazard is Moderate.

Skiers coming up the main basin on Meall Bhuiridh at approx 1000 metres – still plenty of snow at higher elevations

Looking Eastwards from summit area of Meall a Bhuiridh, the rock slopes on the right are on the Southerly aspect @ 1050 metres.

Looking through Glen Coe with Buachaille Etive Mor on the left and the Aonach Eagach ridge on the right.

The Meagaidh forecasters must have strayed out of their area……. and they thought we would not no!
