Cold, unsettled and occasionally very windy on the mountains over the next 10 days. Freezing levels will often be around 750m even as far south as Wales - or lower particularly on the Scottish Highlands. Snowfall is likely to be considerable with potentially some of the largest falls and strongest winds extending across higher tops further south.
