The conditions on the hill today were poor with very strong South-Easterly winds, low cloud and lots of drifting snow causing whiteout conditions above 500m this morning. The cloudbase was slightly higher around lunch time for the picture below before precipitation in the afternoon falling as rain at most levels.
