Blustery snow showers

7th March 2008

Temperatures were much cooler in the Cairngorms today, with blustery snow showers at times. The old snowpack surface is quite variable with rock hard neve in some areas and a breakable crust in others. These groups were working on the sheltered side of the Fiachaill a Choire Chais ridge. Although it looks very white, the new snow at this time around midday was in pockets. Heavier snow showers followed in the early afternoon and the outlook is for more snow but winds are to continue strong .
