New snow.

9th April 2024

As forecast, some new snow did arrive although it was mostly falling on bare ground between 700 and 900 metres.  Above this there are some larger patches of pre existing snow. Wind will have no doubt moved some of the new snow into wind sheltered areas and created accumulations of windslab.

Tomorrow the freezing level is expected to rise to around 2600 metres as a frontal system approachs bringing rain. (see report for more detail).

Unfortunately the visibility was poor for observations today so less pictures.
