Continued drifting!

4th March 2024

Moderate South-South-East winds this morning increased in strength throughout the day to give a similar day to yesterday with significant drifting of snow. The Cairngorm Plateau has once again shown its ability to provide reservoirs of snow which have been redistributed onto North-West to North-East aspects (see report for more detail).
