A Day of Two Halves

21st April 2017

Contrasting weather with rain and low cloud in the morning, much brighter in the afternoon with sunshine and a few isolated showers. The freezing level was above the summits and we had a reading of 2.6°C at 800m with 30mph NNW winds.

Most mountain sides are bare of snow and the few remaining patches of old snow continue to thaw. Some remnants of last week’s new snow cover noted on the highest summits, mainly on the more inland mountains. Colder tomorrow with perhaps some fresh snowfall above 800m in the showery North-Westerly airflow.

Below are a few photos of the mountain conditions in the Fannaichs just after it cleared.(Above)  Beinn Liath Mhor Fannaich (left) and Sgurr Mor. Contrast with the same photo last blog on Monday.(Above) A generally snowless skyline of the main Fannaich mountains with Beinn Liath Mhor Fannaich on the far left and A’ Chailleach on the far right.(Above)  An TeallachSome remnant ‘fresh’ snow just visible on the highest tops.
