Light winds and blue sky…..eventually!

5th March 2017

A low cloud base and very poor visibility this morning. Eventually the cloud lifted and became broken giving a bright and sunny afternoon. The freezing level was slightly higher than expected overnight but this has helped with consolidation of the recent deposits…. The highest mountains are now looking very white.

It’s been a very busy weekend in Braemar due to the Mountain Festival – Lots of people up enjoying a wide variety of workshops, exhibitions, presentations, local food, music and a ceilidh. Well done to all the organisers for all your hard work – It paid off! Great weekend….

Paul, senior forecaster for Southern Cairngorms ran avalanche awareness workshops both days of the weekend with two great groups of people who were highly attentive and extremely enthusiastic. Lots of questions and lots learned!
