Dry, clearer and slightly colder.

21st December 2019

Today was colder than of late with a dusting of new snow over the highest summits (ie over 950 metres). A melt freeze crust is present mainly above 900 metres. The winds were light from a Southerly direction. Yesterdays thaw has stripped snow from lower elevations see photos below to give an idea of snow cover and levels.
