Detailed mountain weather forecast: Brecon Beacons



It will be generally cloudy through the early hours with the odd spot of rain or drizzle and increasing amounts of hill fog. Staying largely cloudy at first on Saturday morning, but brightening up with sunny periods during the afternoon with just the odd isolated shower. Largely dry through the evening with clear periods. Winds easing but remaining breezy over exposed ridges and summits.


Generally good, but poor in any drizzle, especially during the morning. Very poor in hill fog.

Hill fog

Occasional hill fog developing above 600-700m through the early hours and this becoming more extensive by dawn. During the morning the hill fog should become largely patchy in nature and mostly over the highest summits.

Maximum winds above 400m

35-40mph gusting 45-50mph over the highest summits during the early hours. Easing by dawn to 25-30mph gusting 35-40mph and remaining similar throughout Saturday.


Valleys 13 degrees Celsius, rising to 19 degrees Celsius.
800 m Plus 10 Celsius
Freezing level Well above the summits.



Mostly dry and cloudy during the overnight period, although the cloud may be thick enough to give the odd showery outbreak. Mainly dry conditions continuing through the morning with some bright periods. Thickening cloud developing later in the day with an increasing risk of patchy rain and drizzle during the evening along with widespread and persistent hill fog.


Generally good but poor in rain and drizzle during the evening. Very poor in hill fog.

Hill fog

Occasional patches above 700m mostly around the middle of the day. By late-afternoon/evening, most hills above 500-600m will be shrouded in persistent hill fog making navigation difficult.

Maximum winds above 400m

15-20mph with occasional gusts 25-30mph for most of the day, but increasing to 25mph gusting 30-35mph later in the day.


Valleys 11 degrees Celsius, rising to 18 degrees Celsius.
800 m Plus 9 Celsius
Freezing level Well above the summits.



It will probably be a cloudy morning with a risk of some occasional rain and drizzle. Through the day, it is likely to become generally dry with some sunshine developing during the afternoon. Light to moderate westerly or northwesterly winds.


Probably dry on Tuesday, but with large uncertainties regarding cloud amounts. Some bright or sunny periods are likely and these may well be most prolonged in western areas of the park. Light to moderate easterly or southeasterly winds developing.


Any early mist or fog patches should quickly clear to leave a dry and fine day with a good deal of sunshine, particularly first thing. During the day, the cloud may well build, however this should stay largely above the summits. Winds are likely to be light and variable.
