Storm Malik

29th January 2022

There were very strong winds this morning caused by the passing of Storm Malik. These eased slightly as the day went on. After a mild night with rain and thawing snow the temperature dropped during the day freezing the surface of the existing snowpack. There was also a slight dusting of fresh snow on the higher summits. More snow is forecast for tomorrow with the arrival of Storm Corrie.

Pictures below show the current patchy Lochaber snowpack.
