Final blog of 23/24 season

13th April 2024

Today is the last day of the 23/24 forecasting season. A very warm, wet and windy morning meant there was limited views to see today. A couple of pictures show the water and wind, the main features of today followed by some pictures of the area taken over the last week showing the limited snow cover we currently have as the season ends. The largest areas remain around coire rims on North to East aspects above 800 metres on the most inland mountains in the forecast area. Many slopes and summits are largely snow free at the time of writing.

More snow is forecast overnight tonight and through tomorrow so expect to see some more snow on the hills tomorrow. However new snow deposits are not expected to be significant and in many cases will overlie bare ground. Snow will turn to rain below 900 metres by the end of tomorrow afternoon. Further snow is forecast Sunday night into Monday with the freezing level rising back to 1000 metres by the end of Monday. From Tuesday the weather is forecast to be cold but drier and sunnier with winds easing.
