Knowing what the weather’s doing on your mountain day is key to making sure you’re properly prepared and get the most out of the experience. Having the wrong gear for the weather conditions can turn a lovely day out in to a nightmare. 

Fortunately, there are two great online resources for mountain weather forecasts in the UK both of which are easy to use, work well on a smart phone’s web browser and don’t cost a penny.

Met Office Mountain Weather Forecasts

The UK’s Met Office has been predicting the weather for over 150 years and provides twice-daily mountain forecasts for our most popular mountain areas.

Mountain Weather Information Service

​MWIS forecasts contain detailed and accessible information aimed at both novice and experienced mountain users and cover ten upland regions across the country.
