Generally high over the weekend, moderate for extent of cloud on Saturday. High for colder, unsettled conditions next week, but low for details.
Any remaining showers soon die out to give a dry evening. Skies clearing over the eastern Cairngorms, cloudier over western ranges. Fresh westerly winds, freezing level 1400m, falling to 1100-1200m by midnight.
Harmful UV levels from sunlight increase with altitude giving a greater risk of sunburn and eye damage, even on some overcast days. On breezy days, the cooling effect of wind on exposed skin may disguise any feeling of sunburn until it is too late. If there is snow cover, glare increases the effect of UV rays especially on the eyes. It is advisable to wear sun block, protective clothing such as a long-sleeved top and hat and have good quality eye protection.
Mainly dry with sunny spells, best in the morning. Chilly on the tops.
