Planning Outlook for all mountain areas from Monday, 20th May, 2013
Warm with continued rapid melting of remaining snow at higher levels on Monday and for a while on Tuesday with some sunshine but still a risk of thundery showers. Turning cooler, cloudier and more showery midweek particularly across eastern ranges with northerly winds strengthening. A divergence of views towards next weekend with high pressure weakening as low pressure over France threatens to bring showers and local thunder northwards.
