Planning Outlook

Very warm through this weekend with strong sunshine. Frequently dry conditions prevailing into early June as high pressure stays close to the British Isles. Northerly air masses will see temperatures tend to lower with time, with more cloud and occasional showers forming locally. Very dry underfoot in most areas. Please be aware of currently different restrictions regarding Covid-19 across Scotland, England & Wales. Refer to local guidance or instructions from the National Parks and outdoor bodies, and please respect local communities in areas which are gradually reopening.
