18th December 2022
Stormy conditions increased as drifting snow enveloped the lower slopes of the Cairngorms, eventually closing the road. Interesting temperatures this morning. Minus 6C in the glen at 8.30, this rose to plus 2C within the hour as the Southerly air stream arrived. Widespread accumulations of windslab continue to develop. This overlies soft weak layers beneath. Avalanche conditions are expected to worsen over the next 24 hours due to rising temperatures accompanied by heavy rain at all levels.
Conditions in the Cairngorms at 650 metres.
