Mountain Weather Forecast - Issued 22nd March 2012
Posted 22 March 2012 - 10:21
Warm, dry and settled
High pressure continues to sit over Britain through the weekend and into next week. All parts dry and for the most part sunny with just a light southerly breeze. Rather warm.
The Weekend in Detail:
Saturday 24th March - some early low cloud and mist patches which will burn off by mid morning to leave a fine, dry and sunny day for all upland areas. Perhaps more hazy with some lingering mist or low cloud in eastern and northeastern parts of Scotland.
Sunday 25th March - another fine day after early low cloud and mist has cleared and probably a little warmer with temperatures in the high teens in Wales, the Peak and over the SW Moors - a little cooler further north as would be expected but still very pleasant indeed for March.
Continuing fine for most of the week but high pressure will decline towards next weekend with a risk of more unsettled weather affecting northern parts. It then looks like turning cooler and more unsettled generally through the first week of April with a risk of snow over higher hills, particularly in Scotland. Current signs are that cooler and unsettled conditions will persist over the Easter weekend which could be quite wet in places.
