After Storm Corrie
31st January 2022
Today the winds calmed after Storm Corrie leaving a mainly dry day with a thin layer of fresh snow to low levels. There is an icy crust to about 950 metres where the precipitation turned to rain late yesterday afternoon. After that the winds were just too strong and the majority of the snow that came with Storm Corrie has been stripped from the mountain. We are left with only a thin layer of fresh snow which is of similar depth at most altitudes. In the lighter, but still strong, summit winds today there was some fresh drifting onto East to South aspects. These areas are generally small and shallow and can be avoided. The unsettled weather continues with a mild spell again tonight, slightly colder tomorrow afternoon and Wednesday night before the next mild weather arrives later on Wednesday.
