MWIS Blog

We are starting 2020 with a new style of Blog where the forecasters here at the Mountain Weather Information Service will be blogging on the intricacies of the British weather in the mountain environment. In addition we are pleased to be introducing the MWIS Ambassadors - they will be out there blogging on all aspects of adventure and safety in the mountains. A brief bio of our ambassadors can be found at the following link (coming soon):
