Very wintry and icy on the roads
Winter is certainly here this weekend with the back roads being particularly snowy and icy. We took a quick look at the Cairngorm ski area and were surprised to see that the overall cover was thinner than in the valleys and forests due to wind scouring. It looks like we are in for a number of good thawf reeze cycles over the coming week which is ideal building up ice and consolidating the snow.
