Good morning from Naeba! We have had 6cm of very dry, light snow since about 5:30am this morning, and it's currently showing no signs of slowing. The dryness of the snow indicates that it was formed in a cool band of air, meaning it will likely feel cold out there today despite the relatively comfortable -6°C air temperature. There is little wind to report at the base, but as you ascend up the mountain it picks up to a moderate wind. The snow is predicted to continue throughout today and tonight, at albeit a lighter rate of accumilation.

Looking forwards, we can expect light snow to continue tomorrow, accompanied by light winds and an air temperature of just below 0°C. Accumilations will likely be modest. On Thursday and through Friday we can expect the skies to clear a little, with possible some sunshine. On Friday night, temperatures are predicted to drop again and the wind to pick up, with some further snow blowing in for the weekend.
