Bitterly cold today
17th January 2024
Today was bitterly cold with a midday summit temperature of -9 degrees Celsius on Meall a Bhuiridh. Moderate, mainly Westerly, winds were enough to cause continual drifting of the cold snow at higher elevations. Clear conditions meant a good chance to have a look at the snow distribution after the recent fresh snow. A thin layer of fresh snow at all levels with deeper accumulations where drifting has taken place.
More snow showers forecast for tomorrow with moderate winds causing more windslab development as detailed in the report. Further snow on Friday with the freezing level rising to around 400 metres then a much warmer day to follow on Saturday.
