An improving morning

7th February 2023

It was raining as I drove in this morning. After a brief bit of sun (and a lovely rainbow) the walk in to Coire Ardair was mostly in light drizzle. The skies then cleared for a time around midday with cloud coming and going in the afternoon. There were moderate winds and the freezing level was around summit level.

Little change in the snowpack which is thawing but generally stable.

Unfortunately I was heading from the sun into the drizzle at this point. One very clear rainbow and a double one just visible.

Old avalanche debris in the Inner Corrie.

This RAF team hat I spoke to were making sensible decisions in the thawing conditions, here heading for the window.

We sometimes see swimmers at the Lochan in Coire Ardair. 2.2 degrees today.

Some midday blue skies. The Window on the left and Coire a’ Chriochairein to the right.
