A very cold wind chill today with firm and icy snow in some locations and recent windslab in others. Quite a complex 24 hour period coming up in terms of the weather with two frontal systems crossing the area. Snow, sleet and then rain as the freezing level rises to 1300 metres tonight. A degree of consolidation as it briefly falls to 750 metres before it heads up and over the summits again tomorrow afternoon.
