Winter is returning
Lowering temperatures with a dusting of fresh snow on the tops this morning. The next few days are forecast to be quite stormy with frequent snow showers in the hills. The old snow on the Cairngorm plateau should firm up well and the buttresses start to rime up over the coming week. With the winds coming from the west and later southwest we should start to see a buildup of new snow on northeast facing slopes, corrie headwalls and in some gullies.
