Welcome to the Mountain Weather Information Service

MWIS currently produce forecasts for 8 different mountain areas of the UK as an aid to mountain safety.

These forecasts are now viewed by 2.3 million visitors to our website a year, and can be read on the appropriate webpage, downloaded as a printable PDF, or accessed via internet enabled mobile phone.

We now produce all 8 of our forecasts 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year. The Peak District forecast has been expanded to include the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the area immediately between both parks.

The production of the Scottish forecasts is fully funded by the Scottish Government through sportscotland with the support of The Mountaineering Council of Scotland.

The production of the English and Welsh forecasts is currently unfunded.

The website operating and development costs are funded through commercial sponsorship. This successful partnership between public and private funding allows us to continue to provide a reliable professional service completely free of charge.

As always, please continue to give us feedback about what you think of our website, service and future development plans.

We've been featured on the BBC2 programme, Landward. You can read the article and watch the programme here
