Sunshine and snow squalls.

6th February 2024

It was a wild day in the mountains, squally snow showers were interspersed with blue skies. If you could find the shelter it was quite pleasant outwith the showers. The drop in temperature overnight has predictably refrozen yesterday’s wet snow pack and the current patchy snow cover is firm and icy.

The actual snow amounts have been fairly minimal, the new snow has accumulated in shallow, isolated and very wind sheltered areas.
