Event description

Description

Mountaineering Scotland in partnership with the Met Office presents: Everything you need to know about winter mountain weather, by Dr. Mike Reading, Senior Operational Meteorologist, Met Office Aberdeen.

Mike produces the mountain forecasts for the Scottish Highlands and a variety of other forecasts. In the winter months he provides the Scottish Avalanche Information Service with data and weather guidance to help them produce their avalanche forecasts.

A keen climber and mountaineer with over 20 years’ experience and a particular interest in Scottish winter mountaineering, he knows his stuff and his talk - introduced by Mountaineering Scotland's Heather Morning - will give a brief introduction to what causes the weather we get in the UK, about how mountains modify that weather and what causes hazardous conditions, and how these change through the winter season.

Ticket proceeds will be donated to Tweed Valley Mountain Rescue Team.
