A 600m freezing level tonight so the old snow patches will be firm by the morning but with the freezing level set to rise over the summits on Tuesday there will be a return to thaw conditions.

Looking across Coire Direach to Carn nan Sac (920m) and Carn a’Gheoidh (975m).

Very shallow accumulations of new snow.
