Cloud magnet #2
16th March 2018
Another cloudfest today. Can’t seem to escape it. Creag Meagaidh seems to be on the outer periphery of the shower activity in the Highlands at the moment and the clouds – for once – provided some visual interest, though no silver lining.
(Above) The Met Office’s rainfall radar for about 9am this morning. The summit of Creag Meagaidh arrowed. Heaviest precip to the East and South of us. The shower activity more or less ground to a halt just to the SE of our area. We did get some light snowfall (and rain at lower altitudes) but not much and it remained pretty dry from mid morning onwards..
(Above) Gloomy! Photo looking South across Loch Laggan taken from the Coire Ardair path at just after 9.30am this morning. Low level cloud came scudding through with occasional glimpses deeper mid-altitude cloud formations above. (The white dot is the sun but you might be forgiven for thinking it was the moon given the light conditions at ground level.)
(Above) Looking South again across the entrance to Coire Ardair at 1pm. Brighter but still with substantial lower altitude cloudbanks (with a well-defined boundary) almost certainly associated with a weather front just to the south of us.
Getting a lot colder overnight with strong winds only easing later.
