This blog is intended to provide hazard and mountain condition information to help plan safer mountain trips.
The traditional Lochaber weather continues today with some warm and damp weather. It was actually quite nice in-between the showers, if a touch windy
Currently it looks like the biggest hazard today is that from falling ice, although this should reduce tomorrow as the freezing level drops.
And some rainfall data from yesterday collected from around 600m, suggesting around 40mm of rain in 12 hours

Yesterday “wet” period
