Summary for all mountain areas

Largely fine and locally blustery on the hills, but distribution of low cloud/fog/haze will be complicated. Broadly haze and fog confined to lower slopes Wales and S Pennines, and then progressively north into Scotland will increasingly envelop higher tops, especially east.

Headline for Lake District

How windy? (On the summits)

South or southeasterly 20 or 25mph, but perhaps locally 30 or 35mph.

Summits very likely cloud free

Fog and cloud fragments valleys and lower slopes. Higher summits may well be above the cloud.

Chance of cloud free summits?

How Cold? (at 750m)

6 to 11C (temperatures rising between 500 and perhaps 750m above an inversion).

Freezing Level

Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Sunday 30th November 2014

A weak front will bring fine and much clearer weather south to most mountain areas on Sunday - although most of Wales will remain hazy with low cloud. Temporarily colder with snow showers, mainly W Scotland, early next week, after a rain bearing front moves SE across Britain on Monday. Most of the week, rain rare most mountain areas, but from time to time rain likely W/NW Highlands. Light winds and hills often cloud free England/Wales. In Scotland, increasingly windy northwards; often cloudy west. The expectation over the next 10 days of significant cold weather and snowfall remains very low.
