Well the ‘Beast from the East’ is more like a wee beastie at the moment but it’s a bitterly cold wee beastie! We woke up to about 2 inches of snow this morning with intermittent snow showers through the day. Up at altitude the new snow is dry and light and persistently drifting. In very sheltered locations 30 to 40 cm accumulations had developed and they were poorly bonded.
More snow forecast in the next 48 hours with strong winds at summit level – so lots of drifting. Minus 10 degrees centigrade forecast for 930 metres at midday tomorrow Â – combine that with a nearly 40 mph wind and you have a significant windchill.
The camera battery succumbed to the cold conditions today – so no photo I’m afraid – but I did find an archived shot of what I think may be the Beast!
