Winter returns

26th January 2020

There were frequent showers, falling as snow down to 600 metres this morning, with drifting in the fresh South-Westerly winds. There was significantly more new snow above 1100 metres as the heavier precipitation during the night was snow above this level but rain below. It was drier and brighter in the afternoon, once I was off the hill.

Snow cover returning to the Aonach Mor plateau.

Coire an Lochan. Barely visible in the photo but a small, soft cornice was developing.

A brief clearing gave a view to Carn Mor Dearg.

Fresh snow at 1000 metres. This was bare ground yesterday.
