Mild, windy and mainly dry

27th January 2024

The freezing level was just above the highest summits today and there were Gale force South-Westerly winds. Yesterdays fresh snow has mostly melted at lower elevations and what remains higher up is wet and consolidating.

Cornice collapse and falling ice and rocks are probably the main problems at the moment. Tomorrow is forecast to be even warmer and windier.

Cornices remain, in this case above Coire a’ Chriochairein, and are prone to collapse in the mild conditions this weekend.
