A very cold day with wintry showers drifting down the coast from the North-West. Severe windchill on the summits! New snow level was on the beach this morning in Ullapool, but freezing level rising to around 300m later. Weaknesses are present in very localised areas of windslab that have formed on steep sheltered slopes around the summits. There will be a period of heightened snowpack instability tomorrow as the freezing level rises above the tops accompanied by light rain.
