Generally high Saturday and Sunday, but moderate for timing of snow turning to rain Sunday. Low confidence for details next week.
A few snow showers at first this evening across western ranges, otherwise dry. Some good clear spells developing across the Angus and Aberdeenshire hills. Moderate to fresh westerly winds. Freezing level 100m or less.
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.
Dry and sunny, particularly in the east. Cold with severe wind-chill.

Dry but cold with plenty of clear spells through the early hours, particularly across the Aberdeenshire hills. Then a cold dry day. Some patchy cloudy towards the Trossachs, but this clearing up in the afternoon. Further east, largely sunny. Clear skies in the evening with temperatures falling quickly.
80% with most ranges free of cloud. Perhaps some patchy cloud across the summits in the west during the morning.
Temperatures in the glens likely to be around -9 Celsius at dawn where snow lying, falling to -7 Celsius by midnight.
Dry through the early hours with increasing amounts of high cloud. Snow spreads northeast from mid morning accompanied by summit gales. Through the afternoon snow will turn to rain at all levels as mild air spreads in. This will give a risk of icy surfaces in the glens for a time before milder air becomes established by early evening. Cloudy in the evening, but rain easing.
Light and variable, becoming southerly 20 mph by dawn, increasing to 40 gusting 60 mph by the afternoon, veering west 35 gusting 45 mph in the evening.
80% early morning, with cloud bases well above the summits. Becoming 10% by the afternoon as cloud lowers, becoming persistent above 700m, often lowering to 500m.
Very good at first. Becoming very poor in snow, then extensive low cloud.
