Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Tuesday 6th December 2016

South to southwesterly winds will strengthen markedly by midweek, bringing unsettled conditions for several days, likely continuing through next weekend, although confidence of day to day detail is low by the end of the week. Upland gales or severe gales at times. Fronts will bring extensive low cloud and occasional rain, mostly focused on western hills and mountains. The air will originate over the mid-Atlantic, resulting in very mild temperatures, which will bring a thaw of most remaining snow cover.
