Overnight snow

28th January 2020

Snow fell to most levels overnight rising to around 300 metres through the day, unstable accumulations of windslab are continuing to form in sheltered locations, outlook for the next 24 hours is for fairly persistent new snow which will be heavy at times this will further load existing windslab and will further decrease stability particularly on steep slopes where older re-frozen snow exists or where significant depths of fresh windslab form. Also of note, there exists the possibility of isolated thunderstorms on areas near the West Coast.
