Wet and windy

23rd January 2024

Snow down to around 600 metres this morning turned to rain at all elevations in the afternoon as the freezing level rose to well above the summits before starting to drop again in the late afternoon. This caused a period of poor stability in the afternoon as the snowpack became saturated but this should improve tomorrow in lower temperatures. Showers will however start to deposit fresh unstable windslab at higher elevations.
