A soggy affair
19th December 2022
Our mostly cosmetic cover of recent snow, below 600 metres, has all but disappeared. A rise in overnight temperatures and rain affected all elevations. Today continued a soggy affair, with a light drizzle throughout (lovely). The Southerly airflow strengthened in summit areas as the day progressed.
(Above) Sron a Ghoire, with its Bealach to Left. The front face at around 800 metres is a known site of full depth avalanches, on our patch; the angle is right on the sweet spot of 38 degrees. This together with the relatively smooth bed surface is then never a good combination, in the event it becomes windslab loaded. In spite of there being little of note snow-wise, terrain features such as these good to log in the memory if you’re out and about (in the rain!)
