There was a slight frost in the glens this morning followed by spring like conditions. An almost windless day with blue skies the very light winds were South-Easterly and the freezing level was well above the summits. The snowpack is generally well bonded and stable. Some localised surface wet snow instabilities were developing due to solar warming mainly on very steep North to East aspects above 900 metres. The avalanche hazard is Low.
