Dull, Misty and Mild

13th April 2022

It was a day of low cloud, hill fog, light winds and mild. The snowpack continues to thaw at all levels, is diminishing rapidly at lower elevations, but where exposed, the patchy old snow will be firmer at higher elevations.(Above) Looking down the River Broom and Strath More with Loch Broom in the distance. Multi-layered stratus cloud and calm conditions is indicative of ‘dead air’ associated with the slow moving low pressure system over the North of Scotland.(Above) Looking into the Fannaich mountains around Beinn Liath Mhor Fannaich – honest..! The lowest cloud layer here is at around 450m.(Above) Lingering strips of thawing snow are visible on Sron na Goibhre, the northern spur of A’ Chailleach at around 600 to 650m., leftover from the most recent snowfalls of last weekend. It was brighter by early afternoon.
