High for rather changeable conditions to continue for the next few days. Low for detail on Sunday and Monday.
Some showery rain this evening.
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.
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.
Lightning is a significant mountain hazard which can result in serious injury or death. Mountain terrain often leaves one highly exposed to lightning strikes. Hail may give unpleasant conditions with torrential rain and localised flash flooding also possible, mainly in Summer months.
Bright, cold and windy with showers.

Mainly dry in the early hours and at first in the morning, perhaps a brief passing shower over the western Perthshire hills. Showers will become more extensive from late morning and into the afternoon with the risk of an isolated thunderstorm or hail. Showers becoming gradually becoming less widespread from mid-afternoon onwards.
70%, although some fairly persistent cloud between 500 and 700 metres is likely until mid-morning away from the far east. Otherwise patches around 850 metres as showers run through.
Very good outside showers with good air clarity.
Be prepared for cold winds and notable wind chill at height, note the below freezing 'feels like' temperature on the highest tops.
A dry start with only patchy low cloud. Then extensive low cloud, strengthening winds and patchy rain extending eastwards in the morning and through the afternoon, but little rain expected across the Angus and Aberdeenshire hills. Drier weather extending east later in the evening. Becoming very windy.
Southwesterly 30 to 40 mph, with gusts to 60 to 70 mph on the highest tops by afternoon.
Only small amounts of cloud around at first, otherwise expect widespread cloud down to 500 to 700 metres from late morning. Best of any breaks across the Aberdeenshire hills. Cloud lifting off the tops later in the evening.
Rather hazy in rain, else generally good.
