How windy? (On the summits)

Southwest veering westerly 30mph.

Effect of the wind on you?

Likely to impede ease of walking on higher areas

How Wet?

Risk rain on and off

Progress of a front eastwards toward the area is uncertain. Most likely starting dry, perhaps dry until afternoon. But gradually rain likely to form, although total rainfall probably small.

Cloud on the hills?

Very extensive

Low confidence in detail; Likely to deteriorate as cloud fills in across the hills, probably by midday. Particularly more western slopes are then likely to remain foggy most or all day.

Chance of cloud free summits?

40%

Sunshine and air clarity?

Patches of sun likely to give way as cloud thickens. Very good visibility but becoming poor in rain.

Planning Outlook

Generally southwest or westerly winds will bring bands of cloud and rain into Britain from time to time next week. However, frequently dry and total rainfall small in Wales and the Southern Pennines, whilst wettest conditions will be on the NW and W Highlands (where cloud very frequently shrouding higher areas).
