All mountain areas of Britain from Thursday 25th September 2014
A change to westerly winds across all mountain areas will bring a series of fronts, bringing bands of low cloud and rain, in from the west, particularly mid-week. Nevertheless, away from the W & NW Highlands of Scotland, total rainfall will be small. Blustery, with upland gales on Thursday and Friday across Highland Scotland. Next weekend and early next week is likely to become substantially dry again, particularly England and Wales. Most mountains are now very dry underfoot and with the possible exception of the W & NW Highlands, will remain so.
