Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Friday 30th January 2015

Frequent upland gales and on most mountain areas snow through until the end of the weekend. On Sunday most snow will become confined to N Scotland and N Wales. Next week, relatively little precipitation, and later in the week from the northwest, freezing levels will rise slowly. Nevertheless, it may well be late in the week before there is significant thaw.
