/ Snow forecast for Cairngorms tomorrow
The first snow of the later year, falling only 2 and a half months after the last snows of the Winter. A lot of talk about a cold Winter again...but this year from a few better groups rather than just that nut from Exactaweather or whatever it was before last year's washout.
Anybody else hoping for a cold one?
inb4 realists say how mild it's going to be.
Someone in the local paper, the Strathspey Herald, was saying last week that the berries in his garden were looking plump this year - as they did on the two recent cold winters!
So fingers crossed but, looking up at the plateau today, don't see any sight of the white stuff ... yet!
is Kinder downfall in yet ?
That would be Colin Mathews from the ski area.
Heading up to Gable crag this weekend. There's been some unusual white lichen growth this summer with all the rain and I'm sure if it gets a wee bit parky it would count as a winter ascent.
It was bliddy freezing (for August) this morning, and lows of 2 degrees are forecast for central parts tonight - so it'll be freezing in the more sheltered glens.
Cycling back from St Andrews today I heard GEESE! Geese mean autumn!
Clearly there will be glaciers in the Norries before Advent Sunday.
Yep :), one of the messages on the CairnGorm Mountain Ltd FB page yesterday was "Its been snowing at the top this morning !!!!"
it was cold enough on the top of Cairngorm
Well, not snow, but frost outside Stirling this morning.....
Snow tweets !
