Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Monday 27th June 2016

Throughout next week, predominantly southwest or westerly winds will bring extensive cloud and intermittent rain across Britain. The focus of the wet conditions will be western Scotland, where between bands of persistent rain, there will be extended showery weather - when for periods on some western mountains the rain will remain almost constant. Least rainfall (and low cloud) will be across Wales and eastern mountains elsewhere. Occasional strong winds.
