A busy day in the Glen….

2nd March 2024

Today was not quite as predicted by yesterdays forecast but this did not deter many outdoor enthusiasts as the glen was very busy with walkers, climbers, mountaineers and skiers. Last night and through this morning light precipitation which fell as snow mainly above 450 metres. Generally an overcast day, cloudy over the higher summits with light Northerly winds. Midday summit temperature was around minus 2.5 degrees celsius with freezing level about 550 metres. Brighter and drier conditions arrived in the afternoon.
