Snowdonia Conditions

It's been so warm of recent that virtually all of the snow has gone, apart from a few small, avoidable patches on the occasional north-facing slope. The thaw was exacerbated by the last week or so of relatively warm (and last weekend's very wet) weather.

The forecast for this weekend is high pressure pushing in from the southwest today. This will slowly be pushed back by the low pressure to the north of Scotland, which will drop temperatures, raise the winds to around 30mph on the tops and drag in a couple of weak cold fronts in the middle of Saturday, bringing a chance of drizzly showers. Sunday looks to be getting better, and Monday looks gorgeous!

This is my amateur interpretation of these sources:
As for me? I'm going climbing in the Ogwen Valley on some classic and airy VDiffs.

Have fun!
