Bright Spells

11th March 2024

After some overnight snow, today started dry but with very poor visibility, some brighter spells developed from late morning. The freezing level was around 1000 metres at midday. Recent South-Easterly winds have coated wind exposed surfaces in a thick coating of rime. In some exposed locations the snow surface is firm and icy, everywhere else there is a thick but breakable crust.

After some overnight summit snow tonight it will be a mainly dry but much warmer day with rain developing towards the end of the day. Rain will continue into Tuesday night with summit snow as precipitation clears Wednesday morning.

Rime on the summit of Meall A Bhuiridh. Most surfaces exposed to the recent South-Easterly winds have a thick coating of rime. This will change tomorrow as temperatures rise.
