(Above) Constant drifting on the hills immediately south of Creag Meagaidh today. Strong SSE or SE airflow all day and cold, too. Just a suggestion of warmth in the sun when it did appear although it was pretty brief.
(Above) Looking south out of the glen between An Cearcallach and Meall Coire Choile Rais. Interesting releases triggered on minor steep terrain features mainly in newly drifted snow. Facetted crystals still widespread under old windslab. Strong winds again on Saturday but staying cold and dry. The heralded change in the weather looks like starting some time on Sunday.
