26th March 2024

Today was a stunning, cold day in Torridon. Easterly winds often bring fine dry conditions to the North-West and today was no exception, the Torridon hills looking at their best with a shallow covering of snow under the sunshine, more cloud further East although the Fannichs were still clear when I was on the summits.

The snow covering is thin, particularly on the more coastal mountains. Some deeper accumulations are present in gullies and around coire rims mainly on East to South aspects. However the snow surface is firm in places particularly on steeper slopes and summit areas, with another cold night tonight the snow surface is expected to be firm again tomorrow.

Strong Easterly winds are forecast overnight easing gradually through the day, with a thin covering of fresh snow. A very cold night tonight with the freezing level rising to around 800 metres during the day tomorrow.
