Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Tuesday 26th May 2015

During the first half of the week, low cloud will persistently shroud many western mountains, accompanied by an occasionally brisk west or northwesterly breeze, as a series of weak fronts drift around an area of high pressure lying southwest of Britain. Very little precipitation overall, but drizzly rain (occasionally snow higher Scottish summits) will come and go in the West Highlands. Locally still notable snow cover higher Scottish mountains, will thin only slowly. Later in the week, still chilly and generally wetter as area of low pressure moves gradually toward northern Scotland.
