Slight freeze then thawing….

10th April 2024

Last night cooler conditions were enough to partially re-freeze the moist snowpack with the freezing level at around 900 metres and a light dusting of new snow fell mainly above 800 metres. During the morning the freezing level slowly rose to above the highest summits and much milder conditions affected the area with rain falling at all elevations. Summit winds were strong from a Southerly direction.
