Winds of Change….

Our bitterly cold Easterlies are a thing of the past….It was thawing today below 600m and the beautiful light powder is now like porridge at lower levels – heavy and sticky. This thawing theme will continue and intensify as the winds continue to veer around to the South and the freezing level rises accordingly to above all summits. Care required in the next 24 hours as there is a large amount of snow out there, with some buried weak layers and some large cornices.
Uninspiring conditions today with monochrome shots to match….
Some large wind features out there – well over 3 metres of snow in this one at 550 metres.
I have feeling that a large number of Braemar residents (pictured) won’t be too disappointed that the snow will be thawing from the village over the next few days – It’s been a fairly tough few weeks.
