Changes in the weather pattern will be slow over the next few days. Areas of low cloud will continue to affect mainly more eastern mountains together with a little drizzle rain. Elsewhere, particularly afternoons, many summits will be free of cloud although toward and into the weekend, a few bursts of rain, and here and there thunder are likely about as far north as southern Scotland. Remaining hazy.
