Today was very cold with snow drifting in the strong North-North-Westerly winds. Unstable windslab is continuing to form in wind sheltered areas on East through South to South-East aspects above 900 metres. Accumulations will continue to gain depth with further drifting overnight, gully tops and coire rims will be most affected. Slopes exposed to the recent strong winds will remain firm and stable.
