Effect of wind on you?

Mostly negligible

How Wet?

No rain

Cloud on the hills?

Many summits cloud free

Cloud, perhaps only fragments, on higher areas, will drift about only slowly. It may well persist on some higher tops and corries most of day, whilst nearby summits are cloud free.

Chance of cloud free Munros?


Sunshine and air clarity?

Sunshine extensive, although high level cloud will often make the sun weak. Visibility excellent; but fog some valleys at first.

How Cold? (at 900m)


Freezing Level

Above the summits, but ground frost many glens overnight and post-dawn.

Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Thursday 15th October 2015

High pressure will dominate the weather for a week to perhaps ten days (England and Wales), bringing long periods of light wind, well broken cloud and excellent visibility to the hills. Rain will be rare. However, now and again, the remnants of a front will drift around the high bringing over a few hours a little light rain here and there, and more widely cloud will shroud higher areas. Highest Scottish summits intermittently near freezing point and at night many valleys will have a slight frost.
