/ Love the MWIS forecast for Snowdonia
Bursts of sunshine. Visibility ranging from appalling or near zero in snow and cloud, to occasionally excellent.
I like it when it just says...Walking will be torturous!
Buffeting - huge fan of Buffeting
Me too. Buffeting is the best thing about MWIS!
especially when it's all you can eat!
Between 9 and 10 this morning in the Ogwen valley that description summed it up- a curtain of hail and sleet for 10-15 minutes with strong winds and poor vis. Then sunshine/blue skies and calm. Now the sky is darkening, wind increasing. There's only a dusting on the tops and the ground was saturated yesterday, slowly draining today.
'all you can eat' - arrgh my greatest nemisis
MWIS is great for odd phrases. 'Any mobility widely impossible' (or variants thereof) is always a good one.
I like 'mobility will be tortuous' :)
.....but I don't like it in reality of course!
