Summary for all mountain areas

The remnants of overnight thundery rain, thunderstorms and very squally winds will continue to move away northwards across Scotland leaving a residue of patchy low cloud and drizzle. This in turn will clear to leave sunshine and a scattering of showers which still may give local thunder across Wales and England. Winds easing everywhere through the day.

Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Sunday 5th July 2015

Several days of cooler fresher conditions. Showers at times on Sunday particularly western Highlands where they may merge into longer periods of rain. On Monday a large area of rain, some of it heavy, is likely to move across all mountain ranges from the southwest. A slow improvement likely as showers on subsequent days become increasingly confined to the north and east of Scotland. Trend towards warmer sunnier conditions extending from the southwest.
