Wave Bars and Lenticulars

14th February 2023

The early bird gets the photos. I was up on the tops before thickening cloud and spots of light rain arrived later in the day as a weak warm front travelled NE across our forecast area. Ahead of this, wave clouds caused by strong winds at height ‘bouncing’ off the mountains to the south, formed overhead. Little change in the snow cover; a slow thaw at all levels affecting the remaining patches of well consolidated old snow.
