Another day of poor visibility but calmer conditions with moderating winds. This allowed us to make some observations at higher elevations and visit Coire Cas and Coire an t-Sneachda.
Yesterdays snow has resulted in deep drifting with the snow fences doing their work on Cairngorm Mountain. Windslab development continues and a softer weak layer underneath this slab is widespread. This situation is likely to persist in the cold temperatures.
Another cold day in prospect for tomorrow with another gloomy arctic circle feel.
