Saturday. The best day of the week-end?
20th December 2014
Several avalanches overnight and during the morning in, or close to, our area. Quite a lot of snowfall overnight above 600m with drifting, but rain at lower levels.
(Above) NE flank of Sron a Ghoire, summit at approx 800m. Significant sheltered accumulation zone and deep build up of new snow overnight.
(Above) Detail of Sron a Ghoire. Red arrows show the amount of new wind deposited snow that blew in overnight. The big, deep ramp of snow above the arrows and beneath the cornice line wasn’t there on Friday.
Big change in the weather tomorrow with persistent rain and mild temperatures expected to induce instability in all recent snow accumulations.
Sunday looking like a pretty miserable hill day.
