9th March 2024

The cloud base remained around 700 metres today, lifting slightly later in the afternoon, which resulted in practically zero photos. The last couple of days will give a good idea of snow cover since cosmetically little has changed. We have some uncertainty in the amounts of snowfall coming into the Cairngorm’s tomorrow – accumulations of up to 5 cm are possible if longer spells of snow develop.  This will affect the snow stability and hazard rating.

Above: temperatures remaining cold enough allowing ice to form.

Above: this is about as good as it got today.
