It was a mild murky day in Lochaber. Summit temperatures were just above freezing. Although the hills are looking blacker than a few days, this is mainly due to the loss of the shallow snow cover at lower levels. At higher levels the snowpack is only slowly thawing, and cover is still pretty good. It looks like the higher areas will gain some snow over the next few days while lower areas will continue to loose it.
