Looking up to pt. 1141m
High pressure making its presence over much of The Highlands. Temperatures up to plus 7 degrees C in the upper reaches of Coire an t-sneachda this afternoon. Despite the unseasonably warm temperatures,  the snow was frozen hard earlier in the day. Even the approach paths into the Northern Corries had refrozen water ice for much of the way in the afternoon. Beautiful clear skies all day over The Cairngorms but very strong SW winds on the tops and plateau. It was nice and sheltered in Coire Cas and later Coire an t-sneachda. plenty of folk out climbing and winter skills groups. Staying mild all week but snow fall at the weekend.
