Damp and windy

29th March 2019

Drizzle and rain affected the area today rendering the snowpack soft and moist, winds were generally fresh  South-Westerly but strong in exposed locations.

A return to colder conditions overnight will give a period of new snow early Saturday morning. Winds through the day will be mainly fresh North-Westerly, areas of unstable windslab will form in sheltered locations where old snow underlies mainly above 850 metres,  fresh cornice formations will be fragile. These areas are not expected to be deep or extensive and should generally be avoidable with good forward planning.
