23rd January 2020
I was lucky to have some company today and went into Beinn a’Bhuird with members of Police Scotland and Braemar MR Teams. After a poor forecast yesterday in terms of cloud level, the updated forecast was much better and instead of being in the cloud we actually had blue sky and sunshine. Whilst the surface layers of the snow are soft, the snow beneath is firmer, especially in areas out of the sun and the guys reported surprisingly good conditions climbing up a gully to the plateau.
No precipitation forecast in the next 24 hours but the freezing levels are starting to lower. It now seems that Sunday is the day to look out for as there is the potential for snowfall and the freezing level is due to drop to around 400 metres. Fingers crossed…..
