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 - A continued northerly breeze will again make it feel cold for early September on the mountains. Many areas dry, but light rain and low cloud will affect north-west Scotland for a few hours. Patchy drizzle will advance slowly south into northern England by evening.
Northwest Highlands
Cold wind; persistent low cloud and some light rain.
West Highlands
Cold wind; patchy drizzle, low cloud N & W; breaks S & E.
Cairngorms National Park, Monadhliath
Strong cold wind; patchy drizzle, high tops often covered.
Southeastern Highlands

Outlook - High pressure currently located to the west of Britain will push slowly east this weekend to become centred broadly across the country by Sunday and early next week. This will bring several days of fair weather, and very light winds. Daytime temperatures improving slowly. Cloud amounts will vary, but there will be some sunshine. Clear, still nights will result in frost and patchy fog forming in many valleys and glens. Later in the week, the pattern is expected to become south-westerly, bringing an increasing risk of rain and freshening winds for western Scotland.
