Planning Outlook

Persistent high pressure off SW Britain will bring extensive dry weather to and through next weekend, although in western Scotland, with the wind off the sea, often cloudy and fronts may bring rain on Sunday. On western mountains the cloud will bring persistent fog until Friday, even to lowest slopes near the coast. However, remaining murky toward west coast of Scotland with further drizzle at times.
