A dry bright day, with more cloud over the coastal mountains. Despite the general slow thaw, there is good snow cover remaining above 600m, particularly on mountains away from the coast. The snowpack is generally well consolidated and stable, although some localised windslab persists on steep summit slopes above 850m, NW through N to NE aspects. More new snow is expected in the next 24 hours.
