Scattered showers

30th March 2024

Today was a day of scattered showers with sunny spells in between. Showers first thing this morning cleared to give a dry spell late morning before further showers early afternoon cleared to give a fine finish to the day.

Showers fell as snow above around 900 metres, although with a freezing level of around 1100 metres, deposits rapidly thawed at lower elevations. Around 2cm of snow fell accumulated at higher elevations this morning with similar accumulations during the afternoon showers.

A mild day is forecast tomorrow. Cornice collapse will be a hazard as temperatures rise particularly where directly in the sun and on Ben Nevis where larger cornices remain.

Coire Dubh, Aonach Mor. Some minor roller ball activity, some from previous days and some from when the sun came out after snow early this morning.


Crags above Coire an Lochain, Aonach Mor. Cornices will become a hazard in milder conditions and sunshine tomorrow.
