As the weather gets a bit wilder and winter returns to the hills it is so important to read the weather forecasts. There are so many available now compared with when I started mountaineering. There are many great website
The Met office
Mountain weather forecast
This is a great article published about the effect of the wind. Many have limited knowledge of the strength of the wind on the mountains,
The wind is a killer the forecast is not good for this weekend take care.
Always remember as I have seen often a gust of 40 – 50 blow a climber or rescuer off their feet. Very unlikely you will get a helicopter coming in so it’s up to the Mountain Rescue Team to get you off the hill. I feared high winds so many of my pals blown over and a few hurt on Rescues. So when you go out spare a thought for those who have to risk their lives for you. Everyone is a volunteer unpaid and do it to help others. We can all have an accident but if the wind is forecast very high stay low level or go to the cake shop.
