Today was very wet and windy at all elevations. The freezing level was well above the summits and gale force South-Westerly winds led to a thawing snowpack. Significant snow melt and rain putting burns and rivers into spate.

Streams running off hillsides with thawing conditions. Looking into Coire Gabhail.
