Extensively cloudy, particularly western mountains over the next few days. Rainfall will be small in total, although drizzly showers will affect mainly western mountains (particularly the N & NW Highlands). Overall, rainfall likely to increase next weekend; mostly due to heavy showers, some thundery. Much lower temperatures on the hills throughout the week, but winds remaining fairly light, except perhaps mid-week northern Scotland.
