Today was a clear day with moderate to strong South-South-Westery winds. The Snowpack has refrozen at most elevations and is firm and icy in many locations. The snow cover has become patchy at lower elevations but is still good above 800 metres. Tomorrow looks a very stormy day. Debris was observed in Coire an Lochain from the recent warm spell.
