Planning Outlook

Mixed conditions late this week into the weekend as fronts drift in from the Atlantic. Occasional rain and areas of low cloud concentrated over western mountains. Wind mostly light and temperatures mild into the weekend. High pressure expanding back in from the southwest by Sunday onward brings a good amount of dry weather for the week ahead. However, still some weak fronts drifting over northern Scotland on westerly breezes which would bring cloudier days with some light rain mainly in the west. Generally warm for most places, but some cooler days for northern Scotland.
