Another mild ‘blip’?

8th February 2019

Today it was wet and windy as I walked to and from Coire Ardair.  During the morning the freezing level rose above the summits and snow turned to rain at all levels and I noted debris from 4 avalanches that probably released during this transitional period. There was a number of violent gusts of wind in Coire Ardair. As I was leaving the coire rain started to turn back to wet snow.

Most of the time the cloud base was around 700m, but there was a brief period as I walked in when the base lifted and some blue sky appeared.  Sadly this didn’t last long at all!
