Mountain Weather Forecast - Issued 12th July 2012
Posted 12 July 2012 - 11:21
Low pressure to the east, high pressure away to the SW of Britain and a fairly strong north or northwesterly wind bringing a scattering of showers to most parts. Temperatures somewhat on the low side for July - though pleasant enough in any sheltered spots in the sunshine and still a high risk of sunburn.
The Weekend in Detail:
Saturday 7th July - there may be some low cloud and rain still affecting hills in England and Wales at first, but this should break and clear east through the morning. Thereafter all parts seeing some sunny spells and a few showers, some of these across England and Wales perhaps heavy and thundery with a risk of local flash flooding, particularly around the southern Pennines
Sunday 8th July - all parts seeing a mix of sunny spells and a few scattered showers, lighter than Saturday across England and Wales, and heaviest and most frequent towards northwestern coasts.
A ridge of high pressure extends eastwards from the Azores high across northern France, but not northwards enough to bring any settled weather to Britain through the week, which will be dominated by a showery westerly airflow. Towards next week the ridge retreats southwestwards as low pressure once again settles over Britain. Expect more rain.
