Cold in the Glens – Warmer on the Tops
30th December 2008
Surface hoar crystals of about 6mm – they grow upwards as a result of vapour in the air solidifying when making contact with the very cold surface. They are beautiful crystals but create extremely weak layers when buried by subsequent snowfall !
