Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Tuesday 31st May 2016

Generally northeasterly winds throughout the coming week. Substantially dry although still some uncertainty regarding the distribution of rain, now most likely England and Wales on Wednesday. Otherwise, day by day, typically areas of fog, mainly lower slopes E & N mountains after dawn, and toward west isolated afternoon thunderstorms. But for most areas very dry underfoot. Indications are for a gradual change to wetter south or southwesterlies next weekend or next week, with rain focussed on western Scotland.
