Showers and Bright Spells

1st January 2024

A Happy New Year to you all from the Torridon forecast team!

If you managed a day out today after last night’s celebrations, there were good sharp views, but summit cloud obscured the higher tops at times, particularly during showers. The scattered light showers eased through the afternoon, and fell as snow on the highest peaks. It remained cold in the Southerly wind.
