The Weather Hills were a line of hills located in northern Eriador.
By the early Second Age, the Weather Hills were inhabited by Middle Men, as were the lands around the North Downs and Lake Evendim, to the north and west respectively. It was believed these men were related to both the House of Bëor and the House of Hador. Those dwelling in the Weather Hills may have been among those granted leave by Gil-galad to meet Vëantur in Lindon.
By the Third Age and the Division of Arnor in TA 861 the hills marked part of the border between Arthedain and Rhudaur. Following the fall of Rhudaur, Argeleb I fortified the Weather Hills, and though he was slain, his son Arveleg I maintained the fortifications until Angmar conquered the region and razed Amon Sûl in the year TA 1409.
