Overnight snow, falling to sea level, was followed by an almost dry day with a good bit of sun. It remained cold with snow melting only where it receives sunshine. Although the mountains are looking great, windslab and wet snow hazards are present. See https://www.sais.gov.uk/torridon/ for details.

A small cornice at the top of the photo formed in Northerly winds and a wind lip, centre, formed in Easterly winds. There was also the start of cornice formation caused by Westerly winds in other places.

Liathach this morning and again 4 hours later. Although it remained cold, snow in the sun was melting.
The car park was covered in snow this morning but this had all melted by 13:00 except for where it had some shade.
