Webcams and weather

We have various webcams and weather stations displayed here.

Please always check the date and time on any images, just to make sure you are getting the most recent. Sometimes a device will go offline, and it might take a while to fix.

Not all the cams and weather stations on site belong to the MGC – we share information with the hang gliders and paragliders of the Long Mynd Soaring Club (LMSC).

Time lapse webcams at the Mynd

There are three timelapse webcams, shown below. These are clickable and open full size in a new tab. If viewing on a mobile device, full size images are better viewed in landscape mode.  Worth noting that you can often speed up or slow down the replay speed by adjusting your browser settings.

West Cam:   this is located in the club house, and shows the sky state facing west.

Hangar Cam:   this is mounted on the hangar, facing east.

North Cam:   this faces north and shows the windsock.
