Planning Outlook for all mountain areas from Thursday, 20th June, 2013
Thursday will start with a good deal of dry, bright weather across most of Scotland apart from the North West Highlands where drizzly rain is likely. However, there's quite a high risk of pulses of warm, humid air and thundery rain moving north over much of England and Wales and possibly reaching the Scottish Borders in the evening. Turning more widely unsettled on Friday and Saturday with most places seeing some heavy rain at one time or another. Hint of a trend to more generally drier, warmer conditions early next week.
