Snow showers with poor visibility

6th April 2019

After a clear cool night it started to snow quite heavily during the morning laying 3-4 centimetres of new snow in sheltered locations mainly above 900 metres. The winds were generally light from the East-North-Easterly direction. Minus one degree celsius at 1100 metres this morning but the freezing level slow rose during the course of the day.
