A glorious sunny day today but significant hazard increase for Wednesday

5th December 2023

Poorly bonded Windslab is present but pretty much confined to a just below coire rims and gully tops that face west, however it overlies a weak layer of weak grains and could be triggered on steep convex slopes 35 deg or more. All change tomorrow with very strong Gale force winds developing and piling snow onto West through North to North east aspects – deep unstable windslab with avalanches likely here. !
