After the storms…..

29th December 2023

It was calm and almost windless today, clear skies with a bonus of some sunshine. More snow arrived last mainly above 650 metres, also a slight frost in the glens gave some icy paths.  Today was colder than of late with very light Westerly winds the freezing level was around 500 metres. The photos  tell the story:~
