It was a another windy day in Lochaber with snow showers through the day. The freezing level dropped during the morning, with exposed areas turning very icy through the day. Looks like a few unsettled days with a mix of strong winds, fresh snow and some mild periods forecast.

Snow blowing around by the race hut at an altitude of about 850 metres on Aonach Mor today. 

A gap in the showers on the summit plateau. Plenty of blowing snow reducing visibility at ground level.
