A mainly dry day with some drizzle and light rain on occasions. The freezing level was generally above the highest summits and the winds were fresh from the South-West.

The snowpack is generally well bonded and stable. Some isolated wet snow surface instabilities were present on steep terrain. The snowpack continues to slowly thaw with the snow cover depleting below 850 metres.
