Met Office to hold mountain weather open day
Bookmark and Share
The Met Office has announced that it will hold an open day next month where it will provide an insight into how it produces its mountain weather forecasts.

Aimed specifically at climbers and walkers, the event in Exeter on March 27th will offer information and talks, with the formal event lasting around two hours and 20 minutes.

Following this, there will be a chance for members of the public to give feedback, which the forecasting organisation said may help it enhance its services to mountain users.

Those who like to plan ahead for a day on the hills before putting on their walking boots may wish to attend the event, which the Met Office said is the first of several it plans to stage this year.

Existing mountain forecasting services include that provided by the Lake District National Park authority, which involves a member of staff climbing Helvellyn and taking measurements and observations each day.
