After another cold night it was then a bright, dry morning. It became cloudier in the afternoon but remained dry. During the day the freezing level rose to around 600 metres. Winds were moderate from a North-Westerly direction and slightly stronger over the higher summits. Isolated, shallow accumulations of windslab are present in wind sheltered locations, mainly on East through South to South-West aspects. Coire rims, sheltered gullies and gully tops are most affected. The older snowpack remains frozen, firm and icy. The avalanche hazard is Low.
