A wintry day.

12th March 2020

There was snow down to the road side this morning at Anancaun but the showers turned to sleet later. On higher ground there was drifting and visibility was generally poor. The older snow pack is steadily refreezing and stability is improving but we have wind slab instabilities gaining depth above 700 metres. The winds will be generally Northerly over night but then veering South-Easterly by the end of this forecasting period meaning that there will be quite a bit of snow redistribution.

The northern side of Meal Gorm holds some fine climbing, Bypass Buttress, Global Warming, Shamrock Gully and Spiral terrace are popular. As the climbing is near the sea it is important that the turf is frozen.

Looking up towards some climbing on Liathach, its not as icy as it was.
