Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Monday 6th July 2015

On Monday a large area of rain, some of it heavy particularly Wales, northern England and southern Scotland, is likely to move slowly from the southwest. Showers on subsequent days will become increasingly confined to the north and east of Scotland. As temperatures fall appreciably midweek these showers will turn to snow over highest tops in Scotland where night temperatures may dip just below freezing. However, milder, and eventually wetter conditions should return to most areas by the weekend.
