Very high water levels
5th February 2024
Today was very wet with constant heavy rain at all levels throughout the forecast period and a significant thaw of the remaining snowpack. River levels are high and even small streams are difficult to cross today. Several rivers have burst their banks as shown below.
Greatest snow accumulations will remain in high North and East facing corries and gullies. The remaining snow will begin to refreeze as the temperature drops through the night tonight. As the snow surface becomes firm a slip or trip could have very serious consequences with many steep slopes having run outs onto rocks below. We are about to enter a colder spell of weather although also drier with limited snow in the forecast.
Todays pictures show the high water levels in the Lochaber area. Hopefully tomorrows pictures will show some of the snow that remains.
