Planning Outlook for all mountain areas from Friday, 6th December, 2013
Bitterly cold Friday along the spine of Britain, but particularly Wales less cold air will begin to edge back in. There will be rain on and off, mainly W Scotland (with snow becoming confined to highest summits) over the weekend, but generally the recent 'status-quo' returning for most of next week - often dry but cloudy. However, overall more windy next week.
