Planning Outlook

High strengthens during the weekend, which generally means good mountain weather, sometimes morning fog in valleys and often calm, sunny days. With northwesterly winds cloudier and especially on Sunday wet on western coastal Highlands. During the first week of June, northwesterly winds are likely to prevail, but frontal system coming from the north on Tuesday will bring cooling and intense showers to Scotland and northern England. Highest Munros may even see some fresh snow.
