Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Thursday 18th September 2014

Changes in the weather pattern will be slow over the next few days. Areas of low cloud will continue to affect mainly more eastern mountains together with a little drizzle rain. Elsewhere, particularly afternoons, many summits will be free of cloud although toward and into the weekend, a few bursts of rain, and here and there thunder are likely about as far north as southern Scotland. Remaining hazy.
