Mild and windy
21st January 2023
After a long cold period the freezing level rose to summit level today. Winds were gale force over the summits and the cloud base was around 900 metres. Some early showers fell as snow on the summits getting lighter and turning more to rain later. Similar conditions for the next few days. The snowpack is starting to slowly consolidate and this should continue. Cornice collapse is and will remain a significant hazard with the possibility of this triggering avalanches.
Not the best day for photos but a few from Ben Nevis below.
