Drifting.

24th February 2022

The Wintry conditions continue with the snow gates closed this morning  and a fair bit of snow drifting at all levels. Initially visibility was generally poor and it felt very cold, particularly where exposed to the strong winds.

Late morning the cloud started to break up but the cold snow continued to drift in the strong winds. Sheltered slopes like this one holding deep accumulations.
