Northern Cairngorms...

I was out in the Northern Cairngorms today with Kris Hill.  Over the last week there has been cold weather sitting just out to the west of the UK.

This week it appears that we are likely to get a few cold pulses, with snow at higher levels and perhaps more significant snow in the North West Highlands later in the week.  At the moment a massive high pressure system is blocking this cold weather from coming in, maintaining relatively mild conditions in the alps.

Fingers crossed we will get some of this colder weather in the next few days as well as into December.  It was certainly fairly wintery today in Coire an t-Sneachda with fresh snow and high winds.  The ever keen Mark Chadwick was also running in the corrie to check conditions.

A couple of crag images appear here in Facebook. Fingers crossed for a drop in wind speed tomorrow...
