Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Saturday 30th July 2016

Westerly or northwesterly winds until Tuesday will bring showers, but particularly on western mountains south of Lochaber, total rainfall small. Cloud base will often be much higher than recently, particularly around the Irish Sea. There will be little day to day difference (note similarity in most forecast texts for the weekend!). Although very likely fine on Tuesday, later in the day, rain and low cloud may well reach Wales and perhaps N England (timing of this uncertain as yet).
