Summary for all mountain areas

Winds, not strong, off the North Sea will bring extensive cloud; this shrouding many higher summits. However, on more eastern ranges from Wales northwards, extensive cloud will shroud higher hills all day and north from the Pennines a little rain is likely.

Extensive cloud above particularly eastern dales after dawn. By late morning as the cloud base rises, most or all summits will have become cloud free, although cloud may persist above 650m Yorkshire Dales NP.

Chance of cloud free summits?

Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Sunday 23rd October 2016

Substantially dry on all mountain areas and winds often light over the next week to perhaps ten days, although wetter conditions at times across the W & NW Highlands around the middle of next week. Otherwise, cloud will come and go, and occasionally areas of low cloud and rain will affect some areas, principally eastern mountains this weekend. Summit temperatures generally just above freezing point this weekend, but will tend to rise through next week.
