Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Friday 29th August 2014

An area of low pressure will drift across Britain on Friday and Saturday bringing rain, and on Friday on mountains near the Irish Sea strong winds. A weakening front will bring a little rain and possibly in Scotland temporarily windy weather on Monday. Otherwise, Sunday and from Tuesday onwards will be substantially dry, and from the south gradually through next week it may well become very warm with extensive sunshine across most or all mountain areas.
