It was great to get some visibility and lower wind speeds today. This allowed us to get up over 1100 metres and poke our noses over the Lochnagar gullies. There was still a decent wind chill and the cold dry deposits were blowing around in the wind. It is really obvious now that the recent wind speeds have been so high that only the most narrow and defined gullies have managed to hang onto their snow – Even the top of Right Hand Black Spout has had the wind blowing down it…
All change again tomorrow as the freezing level rises up to around 1100-1200 metres for a short period. Don’t worry – it won’t stay that high for too long. Windy again tomorrow so take it steady out there….
Too many pictures to choose from today but it may be cloudy again tomorrow so we take our opportunities when they are presented to us in this job! Having another forecaster on the hill helped add a bit of colour and scale…
