Cloud on the hills?

Mostly very little

Fragments of cloud early morning, but the hills very likely cloud free most or all day. Occasionally patches of cloud may form on higher tops in north Yorkshire.

Chance of cloud free summits?


Sunshine and air clarity?

A veil of high level cloud likely to make the sun weak, particularly toward the south. Very good visibility.

Temperature (at 600m)


And in the valleys

7 to 9C early afternoon, chilly early morning, particularly N Yorkshire.

Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Monday 24th November 2014

Fine weather, associated with a ridge of high pressure on Monday. A large area of low pressure will then gradually envelop Britain, this then persisting most or all next week. This will result in extensive low and cloud and areas of rain. The rain fairly well distributed across Britain, but most precipitation likely E and particularly SE Scottish highlands. Freezing level often above the mountains this week, perhaps tending to fall later in the week but only toward higher summits. Some frost in valleys early week.
