Planning Outlook

Continued mixed conditions over most mountain areas over the next week or more - although a slight rise in temperature. Often cloudy Scottish Highlands with rain at some stage almost daily, particularly western mountains. Widespread upland, or near upland gales, from Sunday night to Wednesday. Until Monday, often dry elsewhere, although on Saturday, some forecasts suggest a band of low cloud and occasional rain will linger across Wales (particularly the south) and perhaps the southern Pennines.
