Planning Outlook

Very much drier over the coming week, although weakening fronts will bring a little rain and pulses of strong winds, mainly to the NW Highlands. Elsewhere, winds light and although extensively dry, fog will be widespread in and above valleys whilst higher up many summits become cloud free. Temperature wise, the odd brief incursion of sub-freezing air onto higher summits Scottish Highlands, but any sustained cold at least a week off. Frost in valleys mostly confined to England and particularly Wales.
