Getting cold…

5th February 2018

A much greyer day today – but it was actually fairly pleasant conditions on the mountains. No views on the summit of Stob Dearg, B.E.M. but it was an enjoyable ascent. The winds are due to pick up tonight with some light to moderate snowfall forecast. Its going to be really cold with the freezing level lowering to 200 metres and lows of -7 forecast for 950m. Although we haven’t been forecast lots of snow what does arrive will be cold, dry and light and will drift fairly persistently in the strong then fresh winds. Have a quick look at the area report if you are out in the mountains tomorrow.

Quite a difficult day for taking photos as the light was poor but the cloud lifted a little in the afternoon.
