The winter may be on the way on the mountains yet as I am down South it seems far away. I travel back early tomorrow and I had a look at next weeks forecast from the Mountain Weather Information Service (MWIS)
All mountain areas of Britain from Saturday, 30 September, 2017
Atlantic lows and their fronts will bring in successive bands of strong winds, rain and low cloud across Britain until well into next week. Wettest and windiest will be western mountains, most rain on the west and NW Highlands. windiest conditions will be Sunday, and on the Scottish Highlands on Monday. Snow on higher Scottish summits on Monday and Tuesday. A hint of drier less windy conditions across England and particularly Wales from mid-week.
Top Tip :It is well worth looking in advance to the weather forecasts on a daily basis. They are free and also later to the avalanche forecast to build a picture of what is happening in the high mountains.
There may be snow on the High tops.
It is the time to check your gear put some warmer kit in ensure you have a serviceable torch and fresh batteries a must for winter walking? Do you have one ? Have you checked it recently?
