How windy? (On the Munros)

South or southeasterly 20 to 30mph around dawn; soon easing to 10-15mph. Direction varying in the afternoon; may become northerly later.

Effect of wind on you?

May impede walking across higher areas for a time after dawn. However, soon becoming small.

How Wet?

A little rain; but often dry

Band of persistent rain over NW Highlands may occasionally bring rain west of A9, mainly morning and amounts small. East of A9, risk of the odd burst of rain later in the afternoon onwards.

Cloud on the hills?

Summits frequently cloud free

After dawn, fog will likely shroud hills west of A9 and risk of a few patches on lower slopes Angus. This should all clear during morning. Thereafter, a few patches will form on higher slopes near showers.

Chance of cloud free Munros?


Sunshine and air clarity?

Hazy sun through high level cloud. Visibility suppressed somewhat due to marked haze.

Freezing Level

Above the summits.

Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Tuesday 22nd May 2018

Extensively fine, often sunny with cloud rarely covering the hills over the next 7 to 10 days. However, in the afternoons, isolated thunderstorms are likely on some days, mainly England and Wales and later in the week as eastern winds set in, fog will intermittently envelop eastern hills. In Scotland, despite sustained snow melt some higher routes will remain blocked by snow for some days yet.
