Sunshine & Showers…..

10th April 2023

It was slightly cooler than of late today with heavy rain at times then brief spells of sunshine. The cooler conditions have produced a light dusting of new snow mainly above 900 metres. These new snow amounts are not deep or extensive, mostly a very light dusting above 950 metres, lying mainly mostly on bare ground and thawing. These new accumulations are in wind sheltered locations mainly at the tops of sheltered gullies and on steep coire rims with a North to Easterly aspect above 950 metres. The older snowpack is generally firm and well bonded. The avalanche hazard is Low.
