Planning Outlook

All mountain areas of Britain from Wednesday 20th November 2019

A slow change to less cold and increasingly wet weather as low pressure slowly envelops Britain from the south. However, 'winter conditions' will survive across the Scottish Highlands until into, or on higher summits, perhaps through the weekend. Next week, cycles of freeze and thaw likely Scottish Highlands, whilst elsewhere, only occasionally higher tops below freezing point.
