Planning Outlook for all mountain areas from Saturday, 25th May, 2013
Generally chilly over the coming week, with the freezing level remaining intermittently below highest summits. Overall showery, although early next week, areas of persistent rain will affect most mountain areas, with north and northwest Scotland probably having least rainfall. Fresh snow will intermittently fall on higher, mainly Scottish summits. Upland gales may well be extensive on Monday and Tuesday, after much lighter winds this weekend, and before a further few days of much lighter winds. Cloud base will often be above most summits, and visibility often excellent or superb.
