Continued thaw conditions
12th April 2022
The thaw continued today. After some light overnight rain it was cloudy early this morning which cleared to give an unexpectedly sunny afternoon. Winds were light and the freezing level was above the summits. The snowpack is thawing and generally stable. Minor wet snow surface instabilities are present on steep slopes exposed to the strong sunlight. A significant thaw has occurred over the last few days with most snow remaining above 700 metres, particularly in corries and gullies on North through East to South aspects. At lower levels and on some ridges the ground is now bare of snow.
