Mountain Conditions
Wednesday 5th May 2021, 14:28hrs: High level rainfall, and higher freezing levels over the past few days has stripped back a lot of the fresh snow from the Main Range. There remains patches on southern aspects above 1700m (mostly in gullies and below cliffs), and on some ridges above 1850m. All sub-ranges are generally clear.

Tomorrow (Thursday) and Friday are supposed to be relatively fine before a storm comes onto us Saturday bringing heavy rain and NW gales for a couple of days.
