Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Monday 1st August 2016

Rain most of the day Wales Monday, its northern edge across N England - most of Cumbria probably fine. A few showers and little wind Scotland. However, most of the coming week will see further areas of low cloud and rain come in off the Atlantic, affecting all mountain areas, particularly western mountains. There will be a change in focus from most rain being over England and particularly Wales early in the week to Scotland later in the week. Upland gales occasionally.
