Is it just me or is the Highland snowpack thinner from just Saturday to Sunday?

Fabulous conditions for a climb in the Cairngorms. May have been a little cool in the breeze above 4,000ft but sunscreen is needed in the mountains at this time of year. Think that’s Ben Macdui still heavily snow covered in the distance.

Those clear skies within this dry air mass produced quite the diurnal variance. 20-22C between morning and afternoon actually!

On Saturday, Castlederg, Co Tyrone rose from a chilly -3 to 18C in about 10 hours while on Sunday, Aviemore in the Highlands went from -2 to 19.9C.
