A cold Northerly airstream affecting the area…

14th January 2024

Last night light snow fell mainly above 800 metres, then it dawned dry and remained so for most of the day. Winds were moderate to fresh North-North-Westerly and the freezing level was around 400 metres, midday summit temperature was minus five point seven degrees Celsius. New snow amounts were not significant mainly a light dusting above 800 metres. It felt much colder today in the fresh Northerly winds, this cold spell looks set for next few days.

    Great pics and blog as always.
    Really useful for planning when having to travel a couple of hours to get to the hills.
