Weather hazards

Poor visibility High likelihood Show less detail

Poor visibility presents challenging route finding conditions. Visibility could be significantly less than 50 metres in all directions with few or no visual references, especially on featureless moors or plateaux. Distances become hard to judge and cliff or cornice edges can be difficult to recognise. These conditions require good navigational skills. There is a risk of white-out conditions when mist or fog is combined with extensive snow cover.

Forecast

Cloudy with rain or drizzle through the day. Gradually turning brighter late afternoon.

Weather

Thickening cloud will bring outbreaks of rain and drizzle across the area through the early hours of Sunday. This may be heavy at times on some western facing slopes while in the east some brief drier interludes are possible. The cloudy, damp conditions are likely to continue through until mid afternoon, when it should begin to turn drier and eventually brighter from the north. Cloud bases should lift and break, allowing some sunny intervals. The evening should be fine and dry with patchy cloud and clear spells.

Chance of cloud-free mountain/hill tops at 600m

20% through the morning and perhaps early afternoon with extensive cloud. Becoming 70 to 80% through the afternoon.

Visibility

Persistent and extensive cloud above 300 metres during the morning and perhaps early afternoon for western areas. Cloud should rise during the course of the afternoon with improvements likely by the end of the day.

Met Office Aberdeen meteorologist's view

Gusts to 35 mph possible across the highest tops late in the day upon cloud and rain clearance.
