East Face of Glas Maol at 1000 metres

Fluctuating temperatures have consolidated most of the limited recent snow. With the freezing level rising for a time yesterday and then lowering a lot of the snow has a fairly strong crust on it. There is also a fair amount of ice underfoot from around 700 metres. It would seem that being further East we just aren’t getting the weight of snow showers that the other areas have received. The same goes for tomorrow with just small snow amounts forecast. It is staying cold and the 35mph wind will be able to drift dry snow so limited accumulations will start to form. 700 metre freezing level with minus 4 forecast for 1000 metres.
