(Above) Coire Ardair, main path. A poor mountain day with very strong winds on summits.
Milder temperatures overnight than of late; however any precipitation was still falling as snow above 400 metres (and a bit below that) – the track with a dusting of fresh today from above the immature birch.
Rain and snow are once again in our forecast for the period. Any transitional instabilities largely dependant on the elevation at which the rain will fall; 900m being the oft accepted bench mark – watch this space I guess….
