Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Wednesday 3rd September 2014

A long period of fine, intermittently sunny and very warm weather with light wind for almost all mountain areas. However, cloud will come and go on higher areas of W Scotland until later in the week, and as winds turn easterly, low cloud will also affect more eastern mountains, in the morning the cloud perhaps also affecting eastern summits in Wales. Still just the threat of a little rain in some areas on Friday before becoming fine again.
