A cold and bright day with prolonged periods of sunshine. Snow showers overnight became less frequent and eventually eased during the morning. Summits temperatures were around -8 degrees Celsius. The winds were strong North-Westerly. Further new snowfall to all levels where it mostly is lying on bare ground. Localised and shallow accumulations of windslab have continued to develop in wind sheltered locations, mainly on East through South to South-West aspects. Coire rims and gully tops are most affected. The older snowpack remains frozen, hard and icy. The avalanche hazard is Low.
