Clear, Sunny and Very Windy
26th January 2017
A great day on the hills, sunny and clear conditions belies the strong southerly winds blowing 60 – 80 mph on the summit of Cairngorm. Inversion conditions are presenting a cold air layer, which is giving us sub zero conditions below summit levels but also strong winds as cold air is squeezed under a warmer air mass at higher elevations. The snowpack has reduced in extent after the warmer temps of the last day or so, but it has now re-frozen and is bullet hard!
