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 ridge of high pressure will give a fine day and soon little wind across most mountain areas. However, low cloud and occasional rain (snow higher areas) will persist much of Wales all day, and edge northeast into Scotland in the afternoon and evening.
Northwest Highlands
Wind falling light; becoming dry. Higher areas sub-freezing.
West Highlands
Wind falling light; becoming dry. Higher areas sub-freezing.
Cairngorms National Park, Monadhliath
Wind falling light; becoming dry. Higher areas sub-freezing.
Southeastern Highlands
Wind falling light; soon dry. Higher areas sub-freezing.
Southern Uplands
Little wind; rain/snow late in day southwest.
Outlook - A transition of weather pattern to high pressure will mean substantial fine weather with light wind throughout Easter Week. It will become warm. However, in the shorter term, low cloud on Friday will slowly lift, and overall a lot of cloud over the weekend. Snow will melt slowly by day, often refreezing overnight (particularly next week).
