Cold and Calm
15th December 2022
This is the first blog of the SAIS forecasting season for the Glen Coe area and what a glorious day to begin our forecasting. Overnight, a smattering of new snow fell mainly at lower levels, then the day was clear and calm with the cold conditions of the past few days continuing, freezing at all levels. The ground and water courses are all frozen, however the general snow cover is not significant, some older snow patches still remain and are firm and icy. Tomorrow, snow falling on frozen ground with strong winds. Avalanche Forecast:- Accumulations of new unstable windslab will develop on steep sheltered North-West to North-Easterly aspects, especially around the tops of gullies and coire rims, mainly above 800 metres. On West and East aspects some localised deposits may also develop above 800 metres. The avalanche hazard will be Moderate.
