31st January 2024

A very stormy morning, the freezing level rose above highest summits in this area and persistent rain fell at all levels accompanied by storm force South-Westerly winds. It was not a great day for photography or staying dry! The freezing started to fall again early this afternoon and precipitation fell as snow mainly above 900 metres.

Looking into Stob Coire nan Lochan, most the wet snowpack surviving in the wind sheltered coire.
