Storm Ciara

9th February 2020

Very strong South-Westerly winds today as Storm Ciara passes. A brief warm and wet period this morning with the freezing level above the summits triggered several avalanches. The freezing level then dropped through the day and rain started turning to snow.

Poor photo quality due to the wet and windy weather.

Debris at the bottom of Observatory Gully from an avalanche earlier this morning.
