Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Monday 8th February 2016

Cold, unsettled and occasionally very windy on the mountains over the next 10 days. Freezing levels will often be around 750m even as far south as Wales - or lower on the Scottish Highlands, perhaps dropping more widely midweek. Snowfall is likely to be considerable and may well consolidate as far south as higher areas of south Wales. Periods of severe upland gales, but occasional marked lulls in the strong winds.
