Precipitation fell as snow to increasingly lower levels today as the freezing level dropped. Very poor visibility during the showers this morning and spells of blue sky and sunshine this afternoon between them. Drifting was occurring in the strong winds and new unstable accumulations have formed in sheltered locations. The transition from being on no snow or firm snow to being in deeper new snow can be abrupt and small cornices were starting to reform today.
Distribution of the new snow is fairly limited but can be locally deep, especially at the highest elevations. The transition from no snow to deeper snow can be abrupt.
Only a dusting of new snow on lower hills this morning.
Blue sky and some sunshine between the showers this afternoon.
