Frequent blustery snow showers

18th February 2020

Blustery snow showers these tended to be quite frequent and at times snow was lying on the roads at around 300 metres. Strong, West-South-Westerly winds were very strong over the summits transporting snow causing drifting in sheltered locations and forming unstable windslab deposits. Please see avalanche report for more detail.
