No jacket required…
19th March 2023
A bright start and very light winds this morning meant that it was ‘Free the Fleece’ day with no shell jacket required. Light winds meant that the mountain hares were happy to relax out on the hillside and I managed to snap a few shots of them and their changing coats.
Slightly cooler temperatures meant that the snow wasn’t quite as soft and wet as yesterday – In some locations it was starting to firm up. Cover is limited on the hills around the Glenshee Ski Centre but further to the NW, the higher mountains of the main Cairngorm plateau are still holding onto extensive areas.
A trace of new snow is forecast to arrive overnight but it will thaw fairly quickly as the freezing level once again rises above the summits. Staying unsettled for the next few days with low pressure in control and a number of fronts rolling through.
