Updated 11.30 on Friday 9 February
It’s going to be very windy across all mountain regions on Saturday with gusts up to 70mph in the Highlands and up to 60mph in the Lake District. The Met Office has also issued a red warning about ‘severe chill effect’. It’s going to be COLD. There is a risk of snow and hail across the Lake District and the Scottish hills.
Sunday the wind drops slightly, but it will still be hard going in the mountains. It will still be cold with temperatures at 900m being between -2C and -7C. Be sure to check individual locations – this was only a very general overview – but, frankly, maybe time for that trip to IKEA you’ve been putting off.
