More snow forecast…
9th February 2020
Pretty serious conditions at altitude today with gusts of over 90 mph on The Cairnwell (930m) and 125 mph on Cairngorm (1245m). The burns were in spate and I got a soaking right at the start of the day. As expected most of the snow is superficial but where you find a wind sheltered location, deep drifts have formed. Temperatures rose a little later than expected but the fluctuation has encouraged consolidation. More snow on the way and importantly the freezing level is lowering to around 450 metres – so the dry, light deposits are going to drift easily in the very strong winds and accumulate rapidly in wind sheltered locations. Stay safe out there….
