Pia = Wild and Windy

21st December 2023

‘Storm Pia’ brought a wild and windy day to the Southern Cairngorms.

During the morning there were some brighter spells before snow and sleet showers developed in the afternoon.

The storm force, North-Westerlies winds were sufficient to uproot several trees, at one point blocking the A93 just outside Braemar.
