Looking around the corridor there have been some large results from a few days ago.

At 2280 meters the temperature as of 06:00 hrs was -2. Winds were out of the SSE at 10-20 KPH.
At 1550 meters the temperature was 0, 62 % relative humidity and the barometer is falling slightly.
In the valley it is +1.

Report of a size 2 Sa in a gully feature on  Overlord Glacier around 12:00 yesterday. Three ski tourers doing the Spearhead. No involvement, not wide but stepped down so it was deep. Winds were certainly having their way with the snow yesterday. In places mother natures grooming was certainly evident with the wind transported snow.
