It was another cold clear day. The cold temperatures have maintained the strong temperature gradient in the snowpack which means the soft weak layer underneath the windslab is still present. With cold temperatures forecast to continue this is weak layer is likely to persist. Accumulations of windslab are present on East to South aspects. Redistribution Â of snow in strong Westerly winds is likely to cause further fresh windslab on North-East to South-East aspects.
