Mountain Weather Information Service

The Mountain Weather Information Service provides weather forecasts to aid mountain safety for 10 upland regions across the UK.

MWIS forecasts contain detailed and accessible information aimed at both novice and experienced mountain users. We write forecasts largely in the form of warnings; generally when there is little text, the conditions are fairly benign. Where possible we use wording that indicates the impact of the weather on the user, and particularly when there is the possibility of severe conditions, we try to include this eventuality in the forecast as a probability, even when the risk is low.

Stay up to date with the thoughts of our forecasters, plus regular guest posts from the new MWIS ambassadors.
