Remaining unsettled…

15th March 2020

The freezing level stayed at or above 900 metres for over twelve hours yesterday afternoon/last night, lowering briefly for four hours and has been sitting at 900 metres since 09:00 hours this morning. Consequently we have seen a good deal of consolidation in the recent accumulations. West aspects and lower elevations are breaking through but cover remains good in many locations. The weather is set to remain unsettled for the next 48 hours with fluctuating freezing levels, wind speeds and direction, with some further snowfall forecast.

North to East aspects still holding plenty of snow. More than 350cm here on a NE aspect.

Looking across to Carn a’Gheoidh from above Loch Vrotachan. Good cover for ski touring. Thanks to Kenny from Braemar MRT for this photo.

    Superb as usual, folks. Thanks for the photos. Any idea what the cover is like on the Slugain going up Beinn a Bhuird? Thinking of a bike n ski soon and wondered what the cover is like. Thanks in advance.

      Thanks! Anything in Easterly quadrant still holding good snow, tracks mostly clear, worth a look!
