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 viewed on desktop, tablet or mobile as well as downloaded as a printable PDF.

We now produce all 8 of our forecasts 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year. A major revision for each area is released at roughly 4:30pm, with updates to the forecasts being made whenever necessary during the day. 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.

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 BBC programme, Landward. You can read the article and watch the programme here.
