Additional information
On the day of Friday's report the forecast suggests the temperature at the summit will be above freezing for most of the period until the next report on Tuesday, but close to or below freezing at times. . The temperature at the summit is forecast to be as low as -1˚C (feeling as low as -4˚C). It could feel warm enough at times when the wind is light and the sun is shining, but very cold out of the sun, and when there is a breeze.

No significant snow or ice looks likely to develop from the forecast on the day of the report, but the temperature is close to freezing at times, so it's worth keeping an eye on the latest forecast in case the possibility of more wintry conditions reappears. Under clear skies, with the temperature low some frost or ice is possible overnight and early in the day at times.
