2nd February 2024
Today was mild, very wet and windy. The strong winds limited how high I could get today and the poor visibility has limited the photos that were possible. It is clear though that there is a significant thaw in place. Readings from our weather station at 1185m showed temperatures of around 3 degrees Celsius all day. Most snow remains on his East aspects and todays pictures show the remaining snow on the East facing slopes at Aonach Mor, The main ski area was hiding in the clouds all day but holds less snow than the slopes shown.
The existing snowpack will begin to refreeze as the temperature drops overnight. Snow showers throughout the day tomorrow on strong West-South-Westerly winds. There is some uncertainty about snowfall amounts due to the showery nature of the precipitation.
