>Unlucky for some – slow thaw setting in

>Friday 13th has dawned, overcast and with a hint of mild temperatures in the air. Temperatures around plus 5c or maybe 6c in the valley today and the majority of the snow in the valley has now melted but there still looks to be a decent amount above 400 or 500 metres.

The freezing level if forecast to rise considerably over the weekend, to above the summits by end of day tomorrow. Fingers crossed it won’t be accompanied by any heavy rain and that most of the white stuff can survive. The long term forecast is hinting at a drop in temperature and return to wintery conditions again possibly by the end of the week.

So what to do this weekend? Contemplating an early start to scope out some winter climbing action before the temperature rises and the mist and drizzle sets in. Watch this space……..
