Mountain Weather Forecast - Issued 26th July 2012
Posted 26 July 2012 - 11:18
Low pressure sitting over northern Scotland this weekend with scattered showers pushing across most part from the west.
The Weekend in Detail:
Saturday 28th July - some low cloud and more persistent rain looks likely in the morning across Lochaber and Argyll, turning more showery in the afternoon. Across all other upland areas, scattered showers look likely to develop by midday, some heavy and possibly thundery with a risk of hail in the Highlands; lighter and more scattered, with much more in the way of sunny spells, and most summits clear, across Wales and the SW Moors. Cloud may well thicken over Galloway and northern fells of the Lake District in the afternoon, with some more persistent rain here later. A moderate to strong west or northwesterly wind over summits. Rain and showers clearing in the evening to leave a mostly dry night, though still a few showers possible towards northwestern coasts.
Sunday 29th July - a similar day for most, with a mix of sunshine and showers. Summits mostly clear in all areas between showers though. Heavier showers will probably more widespread than on Saturday with again a chance of some thunder and hail. Once again a moderate to strong west or northwesterly wind over summits and temperatures a little below normal for July.
Remaining cool and unsettled through the week with further showery rain over the hills on most days and the driest, brightest conditions in the far SE, though even here some showers at times. Next weekend looks set to be once again dominated by low pressure centred over Scotland: so expect more rain .....
