Like many parts of the UK today we had unbroken sunshine all day here in Lochaber. The sunshine is as warm as it is in August so on the white sandy beach at Arisaig it is great weather for lounging around. In the shade and especially early in the morning the ice is good to climb and there is plenty of it on Ben Nevis. The snow is firm in the morning for skiing but the sun gets to work early and softens the snow during the day. High up we have similar snow cover to last year's record breaking winter so the spring skiing is good.
High pressure is set in place so calm and dry conditions will be with us for quite a long time to come. Don't you just love the Spring?
