Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Sunday 11th October 2015

High pressure centred away to the northeast with a ridge to the UK will give mainly fair conditions on Sunday. A weakening band of drizzly rain will move south early Monday and fizzle out over central Scotland. High pressure centred west of Ireland will then bring a good deal of dry and fairly sunny weather early next week. As the high sinks southwards some rain, drizzle and low cloud may start to affect the north and west of Scotland from time to time later in the week.
