Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Monday 27th October 2014

Upland gales continue on Monday, but easing during Tuesday, particularly across Scotland. Until early Tuesday, near constant rain over western Scotland in particular will make it very wet underfoot, and many streams and rivers will flood, including also rivers flowing toward the central highlands such as the Tay. Rain and much colder air spreads southwards during Tuesday, leading to a quieter and colder middle of the week. Milder air, gales and rain are likely to return by the end of the week.
