Summary for all mountain areas

Westerly winds will result in mountains in north-west Scotland being often capped with cloud, and a little rain or drizzle possible. Otherwise, generally fair with most mountains clear throughout the day. Fairly cool, but sunshine very strong; beware sunburn.

Headline for Southeastern Highlands

Cool breeze. Tops mostly clear. Dry overall.

How windy? (On the Munros)

West to northwesterly, 15 to 20, occasionally 25mph.

Effect of wind on you?

Fairly small, but remaining cool where exposed on higher terrain.

How Wet? (Precipitation and its impact)

Rain not expected

Cloud on the hills?

Little if any

Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Saturday 23rd June 2018

High pressure will be in charge for the next week to 10 days or perhaps longer, bringing extensive fair weather. This weekend sees a little patchy rain and low cloud for the north-western Highlands brought in on fresh westerly winds, otherwise it will be dry with summits generally clear. Temperatures rising next week, becoming widely hot and humid. A possibility of thunderstorms developing by the end of June, but very uncertain - a chance that they do not develop at all.
