Hazy sunshine will fade as thickening cloud spreads from the west, with some light rain reaching Skye and Torridon around lunchtime, then the cloud and light rain spreading east across other parts by late afternoon or early evening. Some hill fog forming, especially over western coastal ranges later.
Very good initially, though poor briefly in any mist banks in glens. Through the afternoon and evening gradually reducing moderate or good, perhaps poor later on west coast.
A few patches 300 to 500 metres soon dispersing mid morning. Around lunchtime some banks 850 metres over Skye and the Northwest, these lowering 600 metres as rain sets in. Later in the afternoon periods 600 to 850 metres moving east across most ranges, lowest on westward facing slopes. By dusk some banks 300 metres on coastal ranges.

Early hill fog lifting then a largely dry day with increasingly bright skies with some sunny intervals developing.
A few light showers possible over Skye and Torridon but most parts remain dry and bright. Best of sunny spells over the Trossachs and inland ranges away from the west coast.
Mostly fine settled weather should persist.
