Planning Outlook for all mountain areas from Friday, 25th April, 2014

Often dry, although showers will develop in the afternoon on Friday. Fairly warm. Low pressure centred over southern Britain will then dominate the weather for a few days, bringing areas of constant rain and also heavy showers, these focussed on the afternoons. Extensive low cloud, especially east. Driest conditions with least low cloud W & NW Highlands, south of Ullapool.
