Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Thursday 24th July 2014

Continuing fine almost everywhere, very warm and often sunny until Saturday, although here and there an afternoon thunderstorm - possibly more widely in Scotland on Saturday. A change to west or northwesterly winds on Sunday will bring a drop in temperature, particularly to the W & NW Highlands and bursts of rain and thunder may be more widespread into England and Wales. Less warm, but extensively dry into next week.
