The snowpack has continued to thaw and diminish overnight and throughout the day, with very warm, wet and windy conditions.  The freezing level was well above the summits, and it rained heavily for most of the day. Where snow remains, it is saturated and mostly stable.  The rivers and burns will be hazardous to cross.

A break in the cloud allowed a glimpse of Creag Dhubh.

The A’Ghairbhe; this is where most of the snow is now!
