More Like Winter

1st January 2016

A reasonable day and a Happy New Year! Feeling wintery with freezing level down to 600m this morningĀ and fresh winds giving a high windchill effect. Dusting of snow to 500m last night but exposed ridges and summits blown clear.

Still no real base to the snow cover. Bits of ice forming high up on Liathach. But will it outlast in the milder conditions forecast tomorrow?
