After the storm

16th December 2018

Yesterday’s snowfall has mostly blown away at higher elevations due the strong winds, pockets of deeper accumulations exist between 700-900 metres. Precipitation fell as rain this morning up to 670 metres then sleet and eventually light snow at around 800 metres.  It became dry and much milder by midday the freezing level was around 920 metres and still rising. The snowpack is generally well bonded and stable.

The West face of Aonach Dubh with the summit of Stob Coire nan Lochan just visible – quite sparse snow coverage.
