Record #188301:

Twelve Scottish snow patches survive until winter 2008/09 / Adam Watson, and 3 others.

Title: Twelve Scottish snow patches survive until winter 2008/09 / Adam Watson, and 3 others.
Author(s): Watson, Adam.
Date: 2009.
In: Weather. (2009.), Vol. 64(7) (2009)
Abstract: Twelfth annual summary of snow patches surviving through UK summer into following winter. Survival of twelve snow patches in nine locations represents highest total since 2000 and second highest since recording began in 1996. Largest surviving snow patch, below Aonach Beag, was also lowest at 950 metres elevation. Summarizes year's snowfalls in Cairngorm, Ben Nevis and other areas of Scottish Highlands and winter and summer weather of 2007/08 season. Notes help provided by additional observers during summer of poor weather. Heavy snowfalls in January, followed by a thaw and further falls in March and April resulted in best ski conditions for several years, continuing at Cairn Gorm into May.
