South side of the Fannichs

7th April 2024

Todays location for observations was Carn a Ghlinne above Kinlochewe giving some views to the South side of the Fannichs, where more snow remains than some of the other peaks in the forecast area.  An early start was required to beat the worst of the winds which were storm force on the summits most of the day. The freezing level is just above the summits and a thaw of the remaining snow patches continues at most elevations. It did however remain dry for most of the morning before rain developed in the afternoon .

A dry day is  forecast  tomorrow with the winds  due to drop gradually as the day progresses. The freezing level will be around 1000 metres.
