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 - Extensive low cloud and areas rain from S Scotland southwards at dawn will gradually clear from north, although only improving Wales afternoon and evening. Otherwise, extensively fine with light wind. However, in NW Scotland, blustery, showery, and persistent low cloud.
Northwest Highlands
Blustery Sutherland. Showers. Cloud shrouding higher areas.
West Highlands
Light wind. Showers. Cloud shrouding higher western areas.
Cairngorms National Park, Monadhliath
Light wind. Risk showers. Cloud confined to higher tops.
Southeastern Highlands
Light wind. Risk showers. Cloud clearing most summits.
Southern Uplands
Light wind. Cloud clearing summits. Isolated showers.
Outlook - Westerly or northwesterly winds until Tuesday will bring showers, but particularly on western mountains south of Lochaber, total rainfall small. Cloud base will often be much higher than recently, particularly around the Irish Sea. There will be little day to day difference (note similarity in most forecast texts for the weekend!). Although very likely fine on Tuesday, later in the day, rain and low cloud may well reach Wales and perhaps N England (timing of this uncertain as yet).
