Planning Outlook for all mountain areas from Saturday, 7th December, 2013
Substantially cloudy over the weekend, with many, particularly western mountains from N England northwards shrouded in cloud. There will also be patchy rain, mostly western Scotland on Saturday, and western mountains in England and Wales on Sunday. Windy, upland gales in some areas. However, next week, the recent 'status-quo' returns - often dry but cloudy with slow thaw of lying snow, and only highest summits in Scotland intermittently below freezing point.
