All mountain areas of Britain from Monday 24th November 2014
Fine weather, associated with a ridge of high pressure on Monday. A large area of low pressure will then gradually envelop Britain, this then persisting most or all next week. This will result in extensive low and cloud and areas of rain. The rain fairly well distributed across Britain, but most precipitation likely E and particularly SE Scottish highlands. Freezing level often above the mountains this week, perhaps tending to fall later in the week but only toward higher summits. Some frost in valleys early week.
