Remaining cold most the coming week - although the coldest conditions will be tomorrow and Friday. 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 into next week, occasionally fronts will bring several hours of rain and low cloud. Overall summits will often be cloud free, and the visibility excellent.
