Mild conditions continue…….

24th January 2020

It was marginally cooler today with the freezing just above the summits in Glencoe, it was -0.8 at midday near the summit of Aonach Mor 1221 metres. The winds were moderate to fresh from a West-South-Westerly direction. It was mostly dry with just the odd light rain shower or drizzle and misty over the summits.

The snowpack is generally moist at all elevations and it remains generally well bonded, it is more frozen above 1000 metres. At lower levels it continues to slowly thaw and consolidate. Some very localised wet snow instabilities persist on steeper North to East aspects above 900 metres. The avalanche hazard is Low.

I had a problem with my camera today so not much to publish but condition and snow amounts were very similar to yesterday. However these web cam shots do give some idea of conditions

Web camera taken at 1340hrs on Meall a Bhuiridh @1097 metres looking down the top ski lift, no new snow to be seen.

Again taken by web camera looking at Northerly aspects around 860 metres and above.

Soft wet snow on Northerly aspect at around 800 metres.
