Cool and misty

21st April 2017

Strong West-North-West winds with occasional light snow showers over the tops.  Temperatures are beginning to fall again, it was just below freezing by the afternoon.  Old snow patches are firm and mostly confined to the plateau, corrie rims and stream beds.   Cooler tomorrow with a freezing level of around 800 to 900 metres.  Some light snow showers expected through the day on strong North-Westerly winds.
