Rapid thaw

After overnight rain and drizzle this morning, the hills were rapidly stripped of snow at moderate altitudes. Aonach Dubh West Face is once again looking rather black. Most of the snow above 900m looks to have survived, but a glance of the Bidean crags from the village indicated that some thawing has occurred even at the highest levels. This is all to the good for long-term prospects. In the mean time, a lot of folk had a very damp day on the hill today.

More snow forecast for next week.
