60% north & west; 40% Loch Lomond NP

How Cold? (at 900m)
Above the summits
All mountain areas of Britain from Saturday 20th September 2014
Areas of rain will affect southern Scotland, northern England and also Wales on Saturday as a cold front moves slowly south. Behind this front, much clearer and cooler air will spread southwards across Highland Scotland, and will reach most or all of Wales on Sunday. Next week, starting fine across all mountain areas, but slowly as an area of high pressure sinks southwards, westerly winds, bringing fronts in off the Atlantic will begin to bring deteriorations into northern and western Scotland, and by the end of the week, probably to all mountain areas.
