A Day of Two Halves

16th January 2024

Starting quite bright today, with snow showers continuing from overnight at all levels. There were deeper accumulations on existing snow from about 600 metres upwards. Light to moderate North-Westerly winds were blowing snow around at higher levels forming soft slab instabilities especially on South aspects but with others affected also. For the second half of the day, from midday, there was more persistent snowfall, with notable amounts (about 10cm at lower levels), poor visibility, and undoubtably, an increasing instability hazard.

It will dry out this evening, overnight and into the morning. Further snow showers are expected from late morning and through the afternoon. Winds will become Westerly, moderate to fresh with some stronger gusts.

Remaining cold into Thursday.
