Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Wednesday 29th June 2016

A cool westerly pattern will persist across Scotland over the next week to 10 days or perhaps more, and even in England & Wales, it will rarely feel warm. Occasional strong winds. A series of frontal systems will pass quickly from west to east, bringing some rain most days. Mainly showery, but sometimes heavy rain setting in for several hours, particularly western mountains, including Wales. Later this week, the focus of rain shifts further north for a time, but over the weekend, renewed pulses of rain are expected to run across the southern half of Britain.
