Advisory: Current Hazardous Conditions In Upland Areas

snowWith the long weekend coming, many walkers will no doubt be heading for the hills. However people should be aware that conditions in upland areas, especially in the NE are severe.

At least 60cm of snow has fallen in The Mournes in the past two weeks. Yet many areas are snow free as the relentless strong easterly winds have cleared the snow to the leeward sides of the mountains. This has resulted in two hazzards, ice on the windward side and avalanche risk on the leeward side.

Please be advised of the potential dangers and plan your routes accordingly.
