Conditions

A windy day to begin with, and rainy in the afternoon.

Essential equipment
Seasonally appropriate walking equipment, including lighting (such as a head torch).

Additional information
On the Tuesday of the final report of the season the forecast suggests that temperatures will be above freezing throughout the forecast period (until Monday 6th May), and that snow or ice is unlikely in the near future.

As spring draws towards summer wintry conditions will become less and less likely, but low temperatures are still possible, continuing to feel cold at times especially in strong winds, or when getting wet in the rain. If you want to prepare to stay safe on the mountain it's still worth having a look at the latest forecasts for the summit of Yr Wyddfa, and the Eryri mountains area.
