Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Thursday 4th September 2014

Pressure will be high over the next week or so close to Scotland. This will bring extensive fine weather to all mountain areas, some sunny days, although some disappointingly cloudy days - these tending to switch to more eastern mountains by the weekend as the wind turns easterly. However, on Thursday and particularly Friday (as a weakening front approaching and then moves southeast across Britain), there will be a little rain, mainly in Scotland.
