The freezing level rose to around 1200 metres this morning before dropping slowly through the afternoon. This has helped consolidate the snowpack although instabilities will remain particularly above 1200 metres but also in deeper accumulations below this height. There were very strong South-South-West winds at summit level but it was surprisingly sheltered in the lee of Ben Nevis where more commonly a strong and very gusty wind would be experienced caused by funneling and eddies.
