Storm Force south easterlies – and very cold!
25th December 2021
Yup, south – easterlies always provide really strong winds – with even more strength at lower elevations due to accelerating wind as it descends from the Cairngorm plateau. A fierce and bitterly cold day around -20 with =wind chill. An enormous amount of scouring with only the most sheltered places getting any accumulation. Notably coire rims and into gullies – here there is very poorly bonded windslab – not extensive at all but quite significant nonetheless!
The Northern Cairngorms avalanche team wish you all a very Merry Xmas – see you in the mountains!
