Weather’s on the turn.
10th January 2020
The weather’s most certainly on the turn. Got a little foretaste of it this morning as the visibility closed in and the winds picked up. A few light & brief snow showers during which visibility did its disappearing trick. The met forecast for Saturday looks….well, appalling. Can’t find another word that quite captures the direness of it. A shift change tomorrow means my forecasting partner in crime, Seamus O’Avalanche and his blog superstar ‘The Apprentice’ will be on point….and not best pleased. Again!
(Above) Coire nan Gall. Some more snow initially overnight then rain at all levels. Localised wet snow instability expected above 950m on Saturday along with wet weak cornices. (Cornices not much of a feature in this photo but those on Beinn a Chaorainn expected to become collapse-prone.)
(Above) Into the gloom above 850m in Coire Chriochairein today. Visibility declined sharply during light showers this morning. Forthcoming wet snow instability expected to be localised on North to East aspects, mainly gully tops and coire rims. Much of the superficial snow cover at lower altitudes will disappear with the onset of wet and mild conditions on Saturday.
