Showers; Some Sunshine Later!

13th December 2021

Showers, some heavy, eased in the afternoon giving some nice sunny spells. The showers were driven on a fresh South-West wind, with snow settling generally above 700m. There is a dusting of fresh snow above this height, but the old snowpack is refrozen and stable throughout. Pockets of new windslab are developing in steep sheltered locations at higher elevations.

Below are some panoramas of the Fannaich mountains showing the current snowpack distribution. Most old snow remains on North through East to South-East aspects above 750m.

Above; Sgurr Breac, 999m. (left) and Toman Coinnich 935m. (right). Little snow remains below 600m.

Above;  N and NW aspects of Sgurr nan Clach Geala 1093m (right), Meall a’ Chrasgaidh 934m (centre) and Carn na Criche 961m behind. The higher summits were mostly cloud bound in the morning, especially during showers.

Above; N and NE aspects of Beinn Liath Mhor Fannaich 954m (left), Sgurr Mor 1110m and Carn na Criche obscured by cloud centre with Meall a’ Chrasgaidh on the right.
