Mountain Weather
Information Service

MWIS Statement

At this time the Mountain Weather Information Service is continuing to produce weather forecasts, providing vital information for our Emergency Services. The provision of these reports will be continually reviewed in line with government policy and the welfare of our Forecasters.

We will continue to issue daily forecasts and our regular videos to provide information and warnings of weather conditions on the mountains.

We encourage everyone to be aware of the current advice and ongoing updates to the situation regarding the spread of Covid-19 and to act responsibly, both for yourselves and your families, plus those of the Mountain Rescue teams and the wider community.

We wish everyone the best in these times. Stay safe, and stay informed. 

Statement from Scottish Mountain Rescue:

The Scottish Government has stated that “essential travel only must be undertaken" in order to protect our rural communities and prevent extra pressure on our Emergency Services. Now is the time to avoid unnecessary mountain activities and consider our social responsibilities.

Mountain rescue teams across the UK also urge the same message.
