Well the last two days in Lochaber have been fantastic. Blue Sky's and very little wind. Unfortunately I had too many things that needed to be done to get out. The weather at the moment is 8 degrees at sea level and with prolonged periods of drizzle. The snow line is slowly retreating and more of the same is forecast for the next few days but with higher winds due at the weekend. On the plus side as long as the thaw isn't too deep when it refreezes the conditions will be fantastic.
