Cold South Easterlies Winds

5th March 2024

Today was a bit gloomy compared to yesterday’s nice bright conditions. It was predominantly dry although at times, spits of precipitation were trying to fall during the afternoon. Higher summits had some light cloud cover where the light was quite flat and visibility poor, winds were fresh to strong from a South-Easterly direction and the freezing level was around 850 metres but rose through the afternoon to near 1000 metres. Still icy underfoot in places at higher elevations.


This morning, Stob Coire nan Lochan on the left, Bidean nam Bian and Stob Coire nam Beith on the right. Snow slowly dimishing on the lower slopes.

Beinn a’ Bheither with Loch Leven in the foreground.

Stob Dearg and Coire na Tulaich from Altnafeadh.

Coire Gabhail and the snowy Lost Valley buttresses, Stob Coire Sgreamhach on the right.

The Aonach Eagach ridge has lost a lot of it snow cover particularly on this Southerly aspect but still wintry on the ridge line and the Northerly aspect.

Visibility at 950 metres.

Still snowy underfoot above 600 metres.

    In photo no. 4, should that be Stob Coire Sgreamhach on the *left*, rather than on the right?
