Wet, Wet, Wet
3rd February 2023
A reference to the ongoing thaw in Torridon, not Marti Pellow!
The diminishing snow patches are mostly concentrated on North to East aspects above 800 metres. Snowmelt with overnight rainfall combined with further showers during the day increased the level of mountain burns significantly.
An overcast day with the cloud level around 700 metres gave a dreich and gloomy day in Torridon.
The freezing level is expected to remain above the summits overnight and during the following morning before starting to lower to around 600 metres. The very ‘moist’ snowpack should begin to re-freeze and become a little firmer. Rainfall from mid-morning tomorrow will progressively turn to snow during the afternoon, bringing a welcome return to Torridon’s winter.
