The Northern Corries from Windy Ridge
Shower clouds & Blue skies
Windy & snowy on the summit of Cairn Gorm
It started to clear again on the way down
Plenty of graupal in the howers this morning

The weekend brought a colder flow of air from the west then north and with it snow showers, feeling and looking more like winter again. Today Karen and I headed up to Cairn Gorm with snow showers down to low levels but with lighter winds it was a great day to be out. We had graupal in the showers this morning which is a weak layer if buried in the snow pack. Above 1000m we were in the cloud and it was deserted on Cairn Gorm summit. We had just got back down  mid afternoon when the skies cleared and blues skies reigned with bright sun, typical! Looking like excellent cold, clear, sunny weather tomorrow and into next week. Looking good at last.
