Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Monday 12th October 2015

High pressure will be the dominant weather pattern over the coming week to perhaps 10 days and beyond. It will be centred over Britain, then mainly west of Ireland from midweek, bringing a good deal of dry and fairly sunny weather. There will be ground frost many glens and valleys where skies are clear during the first half of the week, and a little early mist, but soon clearing. As the high sinks southwards later in the week, some rain, drizzle and low cloud may start to affect the north and west of Scotland from time to time, but many areas remaining generally dry.
