Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Thursday 30th June 2016

A long run of generally westerly winds will bring rain and low cloud frequently to all mountain areas, with the rain concentrated on western mountains, particularly the W & NW Highlands. Occasionally windy. Drier conditions likely centred on the middle of next week, but there may still be heavy showers. Wetter conditions, again focussed western mountains, will probably then return.
