Snow overnight with strong winds
It has snowed down to approx 400m overnight. The snow came on strong sw wind. Things around Bowfell Buttress look pretty white this morning. It was 10 degrees and raining 12 hours ago and the current freezing level is hovering around the summits. A couple of days with the forecast temperatures and wind speeds could bring places that are steep enough to not hold too much snow into condition. Under the snow on easier angled routes the turf will not freeze down.
