25th February 2024

Calm clear conditions continued today, although with a little bit less sun than yesterday. Dry weather will continue tomorrow, strong Northerly winds overnight tonight will decrease to become light Westerly during the day, there will most likely be more cloud than today.

While the snowpack is gradually consolidating, cold temperatures are maintaining some instabilities in recent windslab deposits as detailed in the report. Cornice collapse debris was observed today and remaining cornices are fragile and will continue to be a hazard.

Cornice collapse debris on Clach Leathad. Other small bits of cornice collapse were also evident. Most likely from either the storm cycle on night of 22nd/ early morning of 23rd or when cornices came into the sun yesterday (24th).
