High confidence for the general weather story for the next few days. Some uncertainty in the timings of low cloud clearance on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Dry with clear spells at first but low cloud and patchy drizzle will arrive from the south through the evening. Light southerly winds becoming fresh over the summits.
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.
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.
Low cloud and patchy rain clearing for a time in the afternoon but returning later. Breezy.

A dull and misty morning with patchy rain or drizzle. Becoming dry for a few hours in the afternoon with bright intervals. Thicker cloud and outbreaks of rain will return around early evening before clear spells arrive late in the evening as the rain moves away eastwards.
Almost zero chance in the morning with extensive cloud from low slopes upwards. Improving to 60% in the afternoon as cloud bases lift but most summits above 900m will remain in cloud. Almost zero chance from early evening with extensive cloud lowering to around 400 or 500m.
Misty or foggy conditions at most levels through the morning and again in the evening. Visibility will become good in the afternoon under the cloud base for a few hours.
Strong winds on the tops in the afternoon with isolated gusts of 50mph possible on high summits and ridges exposed to the southwesterly winds. Low cloud, damp conditions and winds combine to give a marked wind chill on the tops.
No recent ground conditions report available.
A mostly cloudy start with isolated showers but these will soon die away with increasing amounts of hazy sunshine coming through in the afternoon. A clear evening will follow and becoming cold with patchy fog and frost developing by midnight.
Westerly 25-30mph in the early hours but soon decreasing to 10-15mph.
30% at first with patchy cloud above 500m but this soon lifting and breaking up with all summits expected to be clear in the afternoon.
Under the cloud the air clarity will be very good with distant hills visible.
