No problem with maintaining social distancing today – Think I was the only person out wandering around in the clag getting wet and cold… The rain eventually turned to light snow on the summits as the freezing level lowered. Very patchy cover now below 950 metres meaning that you are far more likely to be on bare ground than on snow. Above 1000 metres there are still some fairly large areas of snow especially in wind sheltered locations on North and East aspects.
Should be a better day tomorrow – dry with the cloud breaking up as the day progresses. Freezing level rising up and over the summits again. Didn’t take many picture today as I was in the cloud from 750 metres and the wind and rain play havoc with the lens – apologies! Will try harder tomorrow….

Even Dubh who loves his mountain time was less than impressed with the weather today. Very patchy cover at 900 metres.
