22nd December 2021
Well it was definitely a day for the early bird – First thing was beautiful with a blue sky and sunshine. It didn’t take long for cloud to push in though – but it wasn’t a bad day with no precipitation and moderate winds. There were some amazing bands of warm and very cold air in really close proximity to each other – you travelled from one to the other in a matter of metres. Strangely pleasant to walk uphill from a sub-zero band and then suddenly be in noticeably milder air. The patchy snow remains bullet hard and there is quite a bit of water ice around on the paths, as well as some well developed surface hoar.
Sleet forecast for this evening and then again tomorrow, turning to light snow on the highest mountains only during the afternoon. Amounts aren’t expected to be significant in the next 24 hour period.
