If this link and all the other indicators turn true, we are in for more cold weather. On Ben Nevis the routes which have been struck down by the prolonged mild spell should start to reform. Some unsettled but more wintry weather is forecast after the weekend and that can only be good to help the winter stagger into March.
An expeditionary force is currently struggling up to the CIC Hut to assess the damage to the routes, caused by four days of melt down. One glimmer of hope for survival is the weekend weather forecast that shows colder weather and snow showers approaching the north-west Highlands. Have faith:)
Thanks to Spike Sellers for these photos taken in Coire Leis today. I think the builders may be living near Ballachulish just now if anyone wishes to discuss terms and conditions for moving in. It was not possible to see how much ice is left on the climbs. Tomorrow looks a lot better though.
Good rock climbing weather just now in Glen Nevis. The midges have relinquished their grip on the land and the autumn sun has dried off the rocks. It’s a little cool but very acceptable.
Check out The Weather Outlook Maybe, finally the cold weather forecast for this month will arrive.
A band of rain will push down across the UK and clear away from the south during Thursday morning. It will be followed by a much cooler and showery north easterly air stream which is set to last into the weekend. Overnight frost will be an increasing risk from Thursday night onwards in northern regions, and further south by the weekend.
A lot of uncertainty for next week, with some indications of Atlantic weather systems bringing wet and windy weather, but at the moment we think it’s more likely that high pressure will dominate the weather across Britain. The current weather patterns are very interesting, because many people were expecting an active hurricane season to lead to very stormy and unsettled weather across western Europe. At the moment the opposite is happening, with low pressures systems travelling very slow towards Britain and decaying as they do. This is exactly the type of pattern which would bring very cold weather in the winter months, so watching developments in the weeks ahead will be interesting.
