It was dry through the period but much cloudier today, winds were fresh from South-Easterly direction and it felt quite cold when exposed to these winds. Summit temperatures around minus 4 degrees celsius which gave a cold wind chill affect. Some light scouring was taking place mainly above 850 metres drifting snow into sheltered locations. There were some brighter spells on occasions mostly in the afternoon.
