A spring snowpack forecast

30th March 2024

Overnight tonight we are expecting clear skies. This will mean that it’s likely the surface of the snowpack will cool down due to radiation. So during the morning there might be quite an icy hard surface to the snow, with appropriate spiky footwear a necessity! ¬†Then, tomorrow is due to be a dry and quite sunny day, so all change again, as the surface of the snowpack ¬†warms and softens, particularly on sun exposed slopes. Spring like conditions indeed.

Not many piccies today I’m afraid, as I was waiting for the cloud to clear, for some better shots… which of course, never happened.
