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 windy Scottish Highlands, where gales increasingly north and west. Progressively less windy southwards into England and Wales. Very low cloud will persist most or all day mountains near Irish Sea and W & S Scotland, but clear almost all summits elsewhere.
Northwest Highlands
Upland gales increasingly, especially west.
West Highlands
Upland gales developing toward northwest. Areas of low cloud.
Cairngorms National Park, Monadhliath
Upland winds near gale force. Low cloud mostly clearing.
Southeastern Highlands
Upland winds near gale force. Areas of low cloud.
Southern Uplands
Increasingly windy. Extensive low cloud - clearing E & N Borders.
Outlook - Generally southwest or westerly winds this week will bring rain and low cloud in off the Atlantic from time to time, although in most areas total rainfall will be small, and cloud will often lift off the summits. Driest conditions will be Wales and southern Pennines. The weekend is uncertain, albeit that the majority of forecasts bring swathes of rain, low cloud and strong winds across Britain - at present though there is little consistency in terms of which areas will bare the brunt of the rain and wind.
