Howgills Weather and Conditions Report

23rd Jan 2015

Competitors are asked to read the weather forecast provided by Mountain Weather Information Service HERE

We will have the most up to weather forecast from Mountain Weather Information Service available at the Event Centre on Saturday night. 

At this stage our estimate of weather conditions on Saturday night / Sunday morning will be for strong winds on exposed ridges and summits with the temperature dropping below zero. Wind chill will be significant and whilst the risk of heavy rain (snow of higher ground) is not high, it is possible. Bottom line; come prepared for very challenging conditions on the fells. 

In the meantime please check out the video below for a conditions report:
