Spring like

27th February 2022

Despite Meteorological spring not starting till the first of March in 2 days time it felt spring like on the hill today. There was some blue sky and sunshine although there was often cloud on the higher summits. A freezing level of around 900 metres and a brisk Southerly wind prevented overheating in the sun. Recent temperature fluctuations have been doing a good job of consolidating the snowpack and creating spring snow.

Photos below show snow cover and conditions.

    Is the lochan in Coire Adair frozen over or not?

      Hi Cailean
      The Lochan in Coire Ardair is still mostly frozen. I’ll put a picture on the blog for 28th February.
