Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Saturday 10th October 2015

Pressure will build across the UK linking to a large high centred away to the northeast giving mainly fair conditions for several days ahead. Low cloud and drizzle may affect parts of the west and north of Scotland from time to time through until early Monday. A good deal of dry, bright weather next week but as high pressure transfers to southwest of Ireland light rain, drizzle and low cloud may start to affect the north and west of Scotland from time to time.
