High for mainly settled conditions through Thursday and Friday but considerably lower for developments on Saturday.
Dry with clear spells.
Gale force winds (gusts over 50mph) make walking difficult and strenuous with a potential to be blown over by gusts. There is often a marked increase in winds through cols or on exposed ridges and summits. Distances can take longer to cover and compass bearings become harder to follow accurately.
Wind significantly lowers the ‘feels-like’ temperature relative to the actual temperature, with even moderate winds significantly adding to the chilling effect. Strong winds can result in a severe and debilitating wind chill many degrees below the actual temperature. This effect will be enhanced in rain or wet snow. Without protection, prolonged exposure could result in frost nip or frostbite on exposed parts of the body and/or hypothermia.
Storm force winds (gusts over 70mph) make walking very strenuous with any mobility virtually impossible over exposed ground. Where these conditions occur there is a high risk of being blown over and even standing may be impossible at times with a risk of being blown off one’s feet. Basic tasks such as using a map, eating, putting on extra clothing or communication become extremely difficult away from any shelter.
Mainly dry with clear or sunny spells. Gales or severe southeasterly gales on summits

Good or very good.
Gusts close to 65mph over ridges and summits
Many ranges dry with clear or sunny spells.
Southeasterly 30-35mph gusting 50mph, producing a risk of severe chill effect.
Around 60% across southern hills with occasional cloud developing around 600m through the early hours and at first, otherwise close to 100% with little cloud expected below the summits.
Good or very good.
