It stayed dry this morning with the cloud level just above the summits. The freezing level was slowly rising and there was significant redistribution of the lying fresh snow in the strong winds. I was pleased to be back down before heavy rain in the afternoon, which would have been snow above around 800 metres.

The level of lying snow on the ground in Glencoe varied quite a bit today, from around 700 metres near the coast to around 350 metres further inland.
