Detailed measurements gathered from the weather station relay wind speed and temperature atop Wales’ tallest mountain – importantly, the website also notes the closing time of the Summit Café.
Part of the Adventure Smart Project, the weather station aims to provide walkers, fell runners and climbers with clear weather information when planning a day out in the mountains.
Installed to serve experienced and first-time walkers alike, the BMC noted that the station is particularly important as the number of call-outs to mountain rescue teams on Snowdon continues to increase.
Winter conditions have yet to test the weather station, however, and it is thought likely that the wind monitor will seize up in a winter freeze.
A webcam has also been installed on the peak as part of the British Mountaineering Council’s project.
