Another mild and damp day with very little visibility above 700 metres. However a change in the weather will see a return to more Wintry conditions over the next 24 hours.  Forecast is for strong winds tonight and a mix of snow and rain with a repeat performance in the afternoon.
Good to see Winter is not quite finished with us yet.

With the freezing level up around the higher tops the lower snow and ground is becoming wetter at lower levels. This was around 750 metres.

 

Plenty large patches left in the Glenshee- Lochnagar hills but it would be a long walk for a short ski. Some options around Glenshee, perhaps best in the main Cairngorms.
