Record #197956:

Six Scottish snow patches survive until winter 2010/2011 / Adam Watson, and 3 others.

Title: Six Scottish snow patches survive until winter 2010/2011 / Adam Watson, and 3 others.
Author(s): Watson, Adam.
Date: 2011.
In: Weather. (2011.), Vol. 66(8) (2011)
Abstract: Fifteenth summary of snow patches surviving through UK summer into following winter. Winter from mid-December 2009 to February 2010 was snowy, and second coldest in 100 years. Heavy snow came mostly on winds from between north and east. Light winds caused less drifting than usual, leaving deep east-facing hollows containing relatively shallow wreaths. Large avalanches were unusually frequent, even at rail and road level. With few thaws, snow remained powdery and melted rapidly when milder weather arrived. Summer was largely wet and fairly mild. All-Scotland survey on 22 August reported 35 patches, only six surviving until winter. Lasting snow came to Cairngorms on 18 October, and West Highlands on 3 November.
Notes:

Call for observers appears annually on website www.winterhighland.info.
