Grey Corries

30th January 2024

Today started clear with cloud cover developing over the summits through the morning. With it looking slightly brighter further East I headed to the Grey Corries for todays observations. I reached my high point just before cloud came over the summits late morning. Cloud then covered the summits for most of the day with the occasional break if you were lucky. A mainly dry day with very light occasional showers which fell as snow above around 850 metres.

As with other hills in the Lochaber area, snow accumulations remain in the high North and East facing Corries, mainly above around 900 metres. Less snow on some ridges and at lower elevations but all snow is very firm and Icy. Any slip above steep or rocky terrain would have very serious consequences.

Some snowfall through the day tomorrow with a brief period of rain at most levels around midday. Storm force winds forecast through the morning easing slightly during the afternoon.
