The third edition of this popular guidebook aimed at helping walkers and climbers to plan their activities so as to avoid the inconvenience, or even danger, posed by bad weather in the UK mountains. The book provides an understanding of our complex and ever-changing weather that will enhance the mountain experience for all outdoor enthusiasts. Based on the latest weather research, and illustrated with maps and satellite imagery, the guide helps you to understand weather maps and forecasts and to 'read' the weather on the hills. With experience, you can develop the skills not only to interpret forecasts, but to anticipate changes in the weather by reading the environment around you.

David Pedgley OBE was formerly a weather observer, forecaster and instructor in the Meteorological Office. He was one-time Vice President of the Royal Meteorological Society. A hillwalker for over 40 years, he started the Society's field courses on mountain weather. This is the 3rd edition of the book, which forms a comprehensive handbook to this important subject.Review:
'This is the enlarged and updated third edition of a well-known book by a much respected meteorologist. There are some neat diagrams, with excellent photographs really relating to the text. It enables people, having got the general forecast, to make the best choice of routes. If you want to learn about mountain weather, as any sensible hill-walker or climber should, then this is as good a book as you'll find.' Irish Mountain Log / Winter 2006
