Very mild and heavy rain…
30th December 2021
The freezing level was well above the highest summits in Glen Coe today and rain fell at all levels saturating the thawing snowpack. Snow cover is now much depleted and almost non-existent below 800 metres. The strong South-Westerly winds also aided the heavy thaw conditions. These conditions look set to continue for the next couple of days.
Forecast: The freezing level will be around 2000 metres. A mainly dry day but with the possibility of a short spell of rain around mid morning. The South-Westerly winds will ease and back to become light from the East-North-East then veering to the South-East at the end of the day.
Forecast Snow Stability and Hazard: The snowpack will remain moist and generally well bonded at all levels. The patchy snowpack will be present in wind sheltered places, primarily coire rims, gully exits and mainly on North-West through North to East aspects above 900 metres. The avalanche hazard will be Low.
