Generally high over the weekend, but moderate for extent of cloud. Low for details next week.
Scattered showers gradually die out through the evening with the odd clear spell developing over Caithness and Easter Ross. Moderate westerly winds, occasionally fresh at first. Freezing level just above the summits.
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.
Dry, bright and breezy. Sunniest in the east. Chilly on the tops.
