A day of blustery snow showers on strong South-Westerly winds.  Isolated accumulations of new windslab are beginning to develop in lee areas.  The old snowpack is firm especially at higher levels.  Cooler temperatures with snow showers continuing over the next 24 hours.

Gale force winds with clouds billowing over the Cairngorms.

Looking up towards the Cas Head wall and ridge, very windy over the tops, some shelter was found on the lee side of the ridge.
