A return to winter

3rd January 2022

After last night’s snowfall, the Northern Cairngorms have now been transformed into a winter wonderland.  The summit temperature remained around -6 degrees with light winds from the North West.  Although the hills look white, the majority of the snow is cosmetic with no great depth and is lying-in-waiting for the winds to strengthen and to be redistributed.
