Patchy snow cover

7th April 2024

Yesterday’s mild conditions did significant damage to the snow cover. Everywhere is looking much more patchy now. Below 900 metres the patches are quite small, especially on Southerly aspects. Above 900 metres there are still larger areas of snow, mostly in the more wind sheltered locations on West through North to East aspects.

The winds will steadily decrease through tomorrow giving us a bit of respite from being battered and blown around. The 72 hour outlook is still quite unsettled though with more fronts coming through.

Glas Maol (1068m). Coire Fionn and the West aspects.

West slopes of Cairn of Claise (1064m).

Carn an Tuirc (1019m) at the back with the smaller Sron na Gaoithe  (814m) in the foreground.

Very little snow below 900m on South aspects. Carn Aosda (915m).

Carn nan Sac (920m) and Garn a’Gheoidh (975m) behind.
