Effect of wind on you?


How Wet?

Showers, perhaps heavy, risk lightning

10% risk rain on and off morning, becoming confined to Pennines before clearing afternoon. Otherwise, showers will develop, particularly well inland, with Pennines most at threat of heavy showers, with small risk thunder.

Cloud on the hills?

Mostly confined to higher areas

Cloud may shroud higher tops in morning, but the base probably lifting above the summits by midday or earlier. However, in rain, areas of cloud likely from 500 to 700m, and in places from forest canopies upwards.

Chance of cloud free summits?


Sunshine and air clarity?

Patchy sunshine, mainly coastal hills. Excellent visibility, although higher fells may be foggy for some hours.

How Cold? (at 750m)


Freezing Level

Above the summits.

Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Tuesday 1st September 2015

High pressure will dominate the weather over the coming week, possibly two weeks. But this week, its position, just west of Britain will ensure persistent cold conditions in northerly winds, bringing frost to some valleys at night, and highest Scottish summits close to freezing point. It will become substantially dry, but frequently cloudy although away from N Scotland. Most of the cloud will be above the summits. Frequently superb visibility.
