Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Wednesday 1st July 2015

Very warm and humid air will continue to envelop all areas from the south during midweek - however this will soon trigger thunderstorms and locally torrential rain. Particularly during Wednesday, pulses of thundery rain are expected to advance north across most mountain areas, although currently much uncertainty about precise details. A similar very warm and thundery pattern is expected up to and including the weekend. There will be periods of strong winds and sudden gusts to low levels on the mountains this week.
