Another sunny day
17th March 2016
The snow refroze overnight and then softened in the sun, with areas in the shade remaining frozen. Warm clear weather and light winds. The snow cover is receding slightly each day at all levels.
Cloud in the valley from an overnight temperature inversion.
The crack around the top of Easy Gully gets bigger each day as the snow settles.
The following pictures are from yesterday showing snow cover on Ben Nevis.
