A bit more like Winter
5th February 2022
With strong winds and heavy snow showers through the day it felt a bit more like winter on the tops today. It was not particularly cold, with the freezing level being around 1000 metres. Above this level there was a fair bit of drifting going on in the strong winds. Below this level the snowpack felt pretty wet and soggy. Looks like another windy, showery but much colder day tomorrow. Due to the lower temperatures the windslab that is deposited tomorrow is expected be less stable than the sticky damp windslab I observed today.
