Wintery Showers

15th January 2018

Thankfully the high winds eased overnight as forecast, but a fresh Westerly airflow persisted today, strengthening during the showers. It felt very wintery during the snow showers with quite a windchill! Snow lying above 400 metres by early afternoon on the more inland mountains and drifting, with accumulations of fresh windslab in sheltered locations. More of the same for tomorrow.

A dusting of fresh snow on the tops of the northern Fannaich mountains.

A patchy snowscape at 600-700 metres before the freezing level lowered allowing fresh snow to settle.

A bit of navigation was required during a prolonged shower to reach this summit.

It was quite bright between the snow showers before they intensified. An Teallach appearing in the background.
