Today turned out to be a largely dry day despite the forecasted showers. The cloud base gradually lifted giving some brighter spells over the main Cairngorm massif to the north.

The snowpack continues to slowly diminish but remains well bonded and stable throughout. The freezing level will be above the summits tomorrow, falling to around 900 metres at the end of the day, with some light sleet and snow on the highest summits. A colder outlook for tomorrow.
