Overcast, Rain Later.

18th January 2022

After a bright start today, cloud bases lowered onto the summits mid morning, ahead of light rain by early afternoon. Strong winds at height persisted through the day. There is little change in the patchy and depleted snowpack with a slow thaw at all levels and remaining snow is consolidated and stable throughout. Colder through the day tomorrow with overnight rain turning wintry as the freezing level lowers to 400m by the end of the day. Snow amounts will be small.

Below are a few landscape photos showing the current limited snow distribution on some of the northern Fannaich mountains.
