Squally Rain Showers

22nd January 2018

A rapid thaw has left the snowpack much depleted and patchy particularly at lower elevations. At summit level, fluctuating temperatures have helped the existing snowpack to consolidate, but localised accumulations of fresh windslab are possible in steep sheltered summit areas. Continuing mild with periods of rain at all levels.

A glimpse of the high tops of the Fannaich mountains between showers.

North top of Beinn Liath Mhor Fannaich. At around 850m, the thaw is evident.

Always a pleasure to watch a Golden Eagle ‘playing’ in the wind. This bird seemed to hover, but it was rapidly ascending, avoiding the attention of two Ravens!
