Mountain Weather

U.K. Mountain Weather Forecast

Knowing what the weather is going to do for the next few days can make or break a trip into the hills. At Original Outdoors we have used the Mountain Weather Information Service (MWIS) forecasts to plan just about anything we do in the mountains of the U.K., be it a navigation course in the Clwydian Range or a guided walk up the PYG Track on Snowdon.

The forecasts are divided into mountainous areas, and are updated at around 4:30pm each day. Below are links to each forecast, so this is a handy page for you to bookmark!
