Mild and Windy

11th March 2022

Yet again, an unseasonably mild and very windy day, with summit gales and lingering cloud on the higher tops. The snowpack has changed little over the preceding few days. It continues to slowly thaw at all elevations, but is generally well bonded and stable throughout. Little change in the snowpack tomorrow. However, sleet and a dusting of snow is likely on the highest summits through the day. (Above 2 Photos) The north top of Beinn Liath Mhor Fannaich (850m.) with Sgurr Mor on the right. Most snow remains on N, through E to SE aspects, whereas SW to NW aspects are either bare or very patchy. Very little snow remains below 600m.

(Below) The snowy NE to E aspects of (from L to R), Sgurr Mor (1110m.), Carn na Criche (961m.) and Meall a’ Chrasgaidh (934m.) The cloud base was around 800-850m. this morning and the freezing level was well above the highest summits.
