Scottish Mountain Weather Reports

MWIS forecasts are published for the following day at 16.30, with an update when conditions deem it to be appropriate the following morning at 07.30.

Special arrangements apply during winter months when MWIS publishes forecasts at 13:30 each day. This is done as an aid to safe decision making for hill walkers and climbers, allowing for earlier forward planning. On most days an amendment is made at around 07:30, but it should be noted that other amendments may well take place during the course of the day should changing conditions dictate.

Summary - Very likely fine on all mountain areas, with nearly all summits substantially free of cloud. Winds will be very light indeed, although a definite breeze W & NW Highlands. Visibility mostly excellent.
Northwest Highlands
Very likely fine; extensive cloud, above most summits.
West Highlands
Very likely fine; extensive cloud, above most summits.
Cairngorms National Park, Monadhliath
Fine; fairly extensive cloud. Light wind.
Southeastern Highlands
Fine; fairly extensive cloud. Light wind.
Southern Uplands
Fine; intermittent sun. Little wind.
Outlook - A long period of fine, intermittently sunny and very warm weather with light wind for almost all mountain areas. However, cloud will come and go on higher areas of W Scotland until later in the week, and as winds turn easterly, low cloud will also affect more eastern mountains, in the morning the cloud perhaps also affecting eastern summits in Wales. Still just the threat of a little rain in some areas on Friday before becoming fine again.
