Another day of strong winds. Less snow than expected although it was just light showers that were forecast with the potential for bit more snow further inland. There may just have been a trace on the higher summits this morning but difficult to see as the tops were in the cloud. Another blustery day with scattered showers mainly falling as rain. While the snow pack is wet there has been some firming up at higher levels and its generally well bonded and stable.

A thawing snow pack.

Better cover in the higher coires, this is Coire an Laoigh, Beinn Eighe.
