Amounts Not Significant

8th February 2024

Looking quite bare heading through the Glen this morning with only distant views of the limited, higher accumulations of snow around summits, coires and gullies on mainly North to East aspects. Shades of white on these remaining accumulations highlighting the pockets of soft wind blown snow and areas exposed and scoured by the wind.

It remained dry throughout the day with moderate Easterly winds and the freezing level around 200 metres.

Remaining dry through the next period with gale force Easterly winds, and stronger gusts. Redistributed snow accumulating on Westerly aspects but amounts will not be significant.
