High for timings of rain clearance this afternoon. Low for aspects of the weather on Sunday and Monday, due to uncertainty in slow-moving weather fronts.
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.
Prolonged exposure to heavy rain can result in drenched clothing and a risk of hypothermia if not wearing good quality waterproofs. Terrain may turn increasingly boggy underfoot, while mountain streams will rapidly rise into spate and may become impassable. There may also be a risk of flooding in valleys or glens. If there is snow cover, a heightened avalanche hazard is possible and avalanche reports should be consulted where available.
Mainly dry first thing, but, occasionally heavy rain soon arriving, clearing late in the day.

Occasionally heavy rain will move in from the west during the morning, combined with low cloud shrouding highest peaks. The rain will persist for most of the morning before starting to clear eastwards during the afternoon. Gusty southerly winds during the morning will ease to a lighter westerly by the afternoon. Dry and bright weather is likely to end the day, perhaps with some late sunshine before dusk. Remaining dry and becoming cold during the evening under clear skies.
30% at first, with patches of cloud down to 400 metres across some parts. Quickly increasing to 90% later in the afternoon as the weather front clears.
Poor or very poor in any heavier rain and low cloud. Visibilities improving significantly during the afternoon with fresher, clearer air from the west arriving behind the weather front.
Strong winds across high ridges in the southerly, but easing quickly as the westerly sets in during the afternoon, and feeling much cooler with the westerly.

A dry, cold and sunny start, and remaining dry and sunny until the afternoon with any valley fog clearing quickly. Becoming increasingly cloudy during the afternoon, with a little rain pushing eastwards. Southwesterly winds strengthening through the day. Cloud may lower onto high ridges during the late afternoon, more especially during the evening.
Excellent during most of the day, but deteriorating a little as the rain arrives during the afternoon. Cloud should stay mostly above the high peaks until late afternoon, so reducing to poor visibilities by the end of the day.
100% during the morning, but falling to 60% during the afternoon, then 20% late afternoon and evening.
