The first snow of the winter…

7th October 2008

A little flutter of excitement hit the Fish and Pips office this morning as an email popped into our inbox.  Photos of the first snow fall of the winter – and it is only 6th October!  Not only were the peaks glittering with white snowflakes, but there was a covering all the way to 1000m.  The valley may have been green again this morning, but the peaks are still covered and the cold weather is set to continue.

Although temperatures are set to rise this week, there is another cold front coming in next week bringing with it the chance of more autumn snow.   Long distance forecasting is not giving anything away for the winter’s predicted snowfall, but we remain hopeful at Fish and Pips that this snow on the peaks will form the base of a good snow depth for the season ahead.
