Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Sunday 30th October 2016

Models run by the main centres continue to show 'anomalously blocked' weather well into November. Winds will only rarely be westerly, minimising rainfall on western mountains. Indeed nearly everywhere drier than normal. There will be a significant temperature drop on Tuesday. Until then haze and general murk most lower slopes, whilst higher areas (above an inversion) are widely in bright sunshine and exceptionally clear air.
