Will certainly be interested to see what we wake up to tomorrow. It was great (and unbelievable) to see that the base created on the car park run at Cairngorm survived that rain. I wonder how much the gunbarrel has filled in and whether the car park t-bar uptrack will be completed.

Both access roads closed at Glenshee and Lecht, hopefully this storm will help to form a decent base.

Not in the West at least. The 2 resorts in the east should get something open I reckon.

Meanwhile I'm banking on pennines skiing next weekend at Yad Moss or Weardale. There's no thread for it but Weardale was open this last week with 15 members skiing

I seen the weardale open, still a bit patch in places from the report posted.

I checked the webcam for Glenshee, and still looked a bit patchy.

Seems this year could be a very late start. I remember it was this weekend or last that we were at Glencoe and had 12" at resort level on the car over the 2 days we were there!

Aren't you north east England based Carsey? Should get yourself to the pennine lifts. I can't wait.

And yes very late start, starting to be worrying given how much will be required for Glencoe to get the top lifts running. Wanted to ski before Feb half term euro trip but looking a bit unlikely now unfortunately!

Crook, co. Durham for me.

Agree with you there, itís going to take a fair bit to fill some of the upper slopes up

Raise was fantastic on Wednesday. Unfortunately almost back to square one by Saturday. May do well from the snow tomorrow though which looks like it might just slip to the south of Yad Moss.

Plenty of snow showers of pretty high intensity coming in from the west tonight. Snow down to road level at Glencoe.

Yet again at under 24 hours the Met Office model falls in line with the GFS putting the freezing level above the tops for Tuesday evening with rain. Over the course of Monday the Met Office spot forecast for Meall a' Bhuiridh has raised the temperature for late Tuesday evening by a degree or two on each update from -2 to on Monday morning to +2°c now. From all heavy snow to or even below the Plateau from the evening through the night its now rain at all levels through evening into the early hours of Wednesday.

This has become something of a recurring theme since early in 2016/17 of GFS saying mild, Met Office and ECMWF saying cold right up to very short notice, only for the GFS to be proved correct and the other two flip warm at the last moment.

Met office forecast for GS has snow all this week except turning to rain for a while tonight.

But see Alan's caveat above...

Following on from my post above the Met Office spot forecast for Meall a' Bhuiridh now has a peak of +4°c at the Summit this evening. Early morning yesterday it was -3°c for the same time.

That uncertainty plays right through as can be seen on some of the insane scatter on the GFS ensembles, the Fort William ones reached a peak spread of 26°c at one point. Near record breaking 850hpa temps for time of year at either ends of the spectrum are possible from this point in the next 10 days!!
