Summary for all mountain areas
Strengthening winds, particularly across Scotland, will increasingly bring upland gales to higher areas. Most mountains will be dry with areas of low cloud at first, clearing most tops completely, although cloud will persist on particularly western hills in the NW Highlands.

North or northwesterly 15 to later 20 possibly 25mph.

Widespread low cloud shrouding the hills through the morning. However markedly improving and by midday or early afternoon most or all summits cloud free with cloud almost completely dispersing.

10% rising to greater than 90%

Planning Outlook for all mountain areas from Thursday, 23rd May, 2013
Cold over the coming week. There will be freeze thaw cycles on higher Scottish summits, and on higher tops further south, temperatures often only a couple of degrees above freezing point. Total precipitation will be small, but there will be snow showers (often rain or hail on summits from S Scotland southwards), and occasionally, particularly in western Scotland, fronts may edge in bringing several hours of rain and low cloud. Generally summits will often be cloud free, and the visibility excellent.
