The warm and very wet conditions continued for another day, with the freezing level remaining well above the summits. Heavy and prolonged rain has swollen mountain burns and streams with many difficult to cross. Colder temperatures and strong North-Easterly winds forecast for the following day, accompanied with some limited new snowfall.

Some new snow forecast but this sign is still ironic.
