Cloudy and Mild

27th January 2023

The cloud base was around 600-800m. today, thick enough to give some drizzle, especially on the more coastal mountains. The freezing level was generally at or above the higher summits with a temperature of 7.6C in Torridon. Snow cover is now patchy, firm above 850m. and has good stability throughout.
