Mild & Damp for this first blog of the 2023/24 season.
14th December 2023
It was a showery day with perception falling mainly as rain, winds were moderate to fresh from a Westerly direction the freezing level rose above the summits. Currently there is very limited snow deposits and any shallow accumulations amount to a dusting mainly above 900 metres on Northerly aspects, these snow deposits do not warrant an avalanche hazard today.
Southerly aspect of the Aonach Eagach ridge.
