Fresh snowfall down to glen levels this morning.  Visibility on the whole was pretty poor above 1000 metres;  however some clearer spells developed through the afternoon as Northerly winds veered towards the East.  Cool over the tops with summit temperatures of around minus 5C.

Travel by ski or snow shoe recommended.

Bands of cloud at 500 metres.

New snow overlies a thin crust, this will just about support skis

Some brightness looking North-West
