Firming Up!

1st April 2023

There was a trace of fresh snow above 700 metres last night and a little light snow fell this morning, but nothing of any significance. The surface layers of the patchy old snow have firmed up, especially at higher elevations and will remain very firm first thing tomorrow, before softening slightly at lower elevations later in the day.

No viz on the hills today – so a random selection of photos!

No viz above 850 metres. Large firm snow patches above 900 metres.

A dusting of snow above 700 metres overnight. It thawed fairly rapidly during the morning.

Looking down the Glasallt. First snows cross the path around the 900 metre mark.

Cooler temperatures on the summits mean that less melt water is flowing into the Glasallt at the moment.

No snow on these 700 to 750 metre hills surrounding Glen Muick.
