After the thaw – Before the thaw!
4th January 2023
Despite the overnight thaw the snow cover in the Southern Cairngorms had survived well. River levels in the glens were up but not significantly and the snow on the lower slopes was a a little bit patchier and soft. Above 900 metres there was good cover and a breakable surface crust had developed in the cooler temperatures, making travel on foot a little bit harder.
Visibility improved during the morning with some short periods of sunshine to replenish vitamin D levels.
There plenty of skiers enjoying the pistes at the Glenshee ski area where they even opened the Tiger car lift.
Another thaw is forecast for tomorrow with rainfall at all levels.
