Before the rains came.

23rd December 2017

(Above) Looking towards the western end of the Carn Liath massif – viewed from the bridge over the River Spey at Laggan. L to R: Coire nan Gall, Coire Dubh & Coire a Bheinn (The Post Face of Coire Ardair on the extreme left skyline.)

Good visibility this morning!


(Above) Sron a Ghoire and the Post Face viewed from near Ardverikie Estate office on the A86.

Wind speeds increased markedly just after midday followed by rain (Remember the old meterology saying oft quoted by sailors?, ‘Come wind before the rain, soon be setting sail again’.) You’d soon be putting a few reefs in in today’s conditions + deploying a few sea anchor drogues as well.

More rain in the forecast, too. Best estimate is 30mm for our area over the next 24hrs.
