There are now many different weather forecasts available on-line. These vary in their accuracy, the area they cover and, particularly, in their relevance to conditions in the mountains. Between them, the following three should give a pretty good indication of likely mountain conditions in our area:
1 The Saddle Weather Forecast, generated by the Met Office.
3 The Mountain Weather Information Service (MWIS) produce a detailed Mountain Weather Forecast for the North West Highlands.
Other mountain areas are available!
Avalanche Forecasts for Lochaber and Torridon can be found on the Scottish Avalanche Information Service (SAIS) website: http://www.sais.gov.uk/
There is currently no forecast produced for the Glen Shiel/Kintail area. The above forecasts may provide a general indication of the likely conditions in Kintail but should be treated as a guide only!
The SAIS are planning to start regular forecasts for the coming winter on 14th December 2018, although weekend forecasts for Lochaber and the Northern Cairngorms may start earlier if conditions require this.
