Colder Conditions Expected
2nd January 2022
Another day of gale force winds in the Northern Cairngorms. Slightly cooler, with summit temperatures estimated to be around -1 degrees Celsius. The very top of Coire an t-Sneachda and Cairn Gorm experienced a slight dusting of sleet and snow, which is perhaps an indication of the colder weather expected overnight and tomorrow.
Snow patches were surprisingly firm today above 950 metres.
Frequent snow showers are expected over night and through the morning tomorrow as an occluded front crosses the area. This is expected to clear giving a cold North-Westerly flow and an easing of the windspeed to more moderate levels.
It looks like a return to winter…
