The thaw continues
3rd February 2023
Another day of thaw conditions in Glencoe. There was a brief colder spell over night when the freezing level fell to around 900 metres. The freezing level is now above all summits again with drizzle and strong winds. The snowpack is well consolidated and continues to gradually thaw in the mild conditions. At higher altitudes the snowpack was firm underfoot despite the mild conditions. Greatest accumulations of snow remain in North to East facing corries and gullies above 850 metres. The day will start mild tomorrow, the freezing level will then fall during afternoon with a rain turning to snow down to around 600 metres. A colder day is in prospect for Sunday.
