Back to Colder Conditions
27th December 2020
The Scottish Avalanche Information Service issues information to support permitted activity under current Scottish Government guidance.Â Please be aware of travel restrictions within Scotland and respect local communities by referring to Scottish Government guidance and how to participate safely by referring to Mountaineering Scotland guidance.
A return to colder conditions as Storm Bella continues to pass through the UK. Slightly lighter winds today as Scotland was positioned close to the centre of the low pressure system. The freezing level dropped rapidly yesterday evening, giving snow down to the valley level for a time. The midday temperature on Cairngorm was -6.9 degrees Celsius today.
The cold weather looks set to continue into tomorrow, with a change in the wind direction, so windslab will most likely be redeposited.
