After a dry morning, isolated, albeit locally heavy, showers will develop into the afternoon. Risk of isolated thunder. However, many hills will miss these and stay dry.

Cloud on the hills?

Occasionally shrouding tops, mainly in west

Early patchy cloud will soon lift and clear to leave hills cloud-free by midday. However, patches will reform across higher areas above 800-900m during and after showers.

Chance of cloud free Munros?


Sunshine and air clarity?

Occasional sunshine, especially in morning. Visibility generally very good.

Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Friday 25th August 2017

On Sunday, light winds and largely dry across many mountain areas will cloud lifting to higher slopes. However, showers will give way to more frequent rain across western Scotland where hill fog will be extensive. Westerly winds will become re-established into next week with further periods of rain and low cloud; especially across the west and northwest Highlands.
