Very little by midday

Cloud likely to shroud the hills, perhaps extensively in morning, but the base will gradually lift above most summits. It may be into afternoon before the cloud lifts off highest areas of the Snowdon range and also eastern areas.

Chance of cloud free summits?

20% rising to 70% through the day

Sunshine intermittently, mainly coastal hills. Excellent visibility, although higher areas may be foggy for some hours.

Above the summits.

Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Tuesday 1st September 2015

High pressure will dominate the weather over the coming week, possibly two weeks. But this week, its position, just west of Britain will ensure persistent cold conditions in northerly winds, bringing frost to some valleys at night, and highest Scottish summits close to freezing point. It will become substantially dry, but frequently cloudy although away from N Scotland. Most of the cloud will be above the summits. Frequently superb visibility.
