Summary for all mountain areas

A warm and humid day with extensive low cloud affecting many hills and pulses of thundery rain moving north through the morning followed by further clusters of showers or thunderstorms.

Cloud on the hills?

Extensive much of the day.

Fog across the hills for many hours through the day, in some areas from lower slopes up. However, some breaks will develop for a time, most likely around the middle of the day, before cloud fills in again as rain develops.

Chance of cloud free summits?

Sunshine occasionally. Murky, visibility reduced considerably by rain, and a general haze at best.

How Cold? (at 750m)

13C, very humid.

Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Tuesday 25th June 2019

A very warm and humid week ahead, will become hot and exceptionally humid for a few days from around the middle of the week with the risk of isolated bursts of rain/thunderstorms; although many areas will miss these and stay dry. Some periods of low cloud across the hills; especially focused across eastern hills. Winds from an east or southeasterly direction and blustery at times. Increasing risk of a thundery breakdown over the weekend with fresher conditions arriving from the west.
