Heavy snow showers
27th January 2013
Last night summit temperature rose to plus three degrees Celsius, and it rained heavily. According to some folk that had been staying at the CIC there had been no snow on the crags first thing this morning. This brief mild spell and subsequent return to colder conditions will have helped stabalise the existing snowpack. However, heavy snow showers through the day soon started building up fresh layers of unstable windslab.
Carn Dearg buttress this morning. The CIC hut cascades look in quite good nick despite last nights thaw.
Todays snow is shearing quite easily.
