Dry, calm and bright….

4th March 2022

Overnight, cooler temperatures gave a slight frost in the glens and refroze the moist snowpack. Today was a dry, spring like day, light to moderate North-Westerly winds. The freezing level was around 750 metres.

Overnight and tomorrow, little change is expected to the snowpack. It will remain firm, icy and well bonded in all locations. Ice axe and crampons required as surface layers will be frozen and icy, a slip could lead to serious consequences on medium to steep ground.

Near the summit of Meall a’ Bhuiridh, rime ice on the rocks and hoar frost has developed on the re-frozen snowpack.
