Detailed mountain weather forecast: Lake District



After a clear and mild night, it will be another fine day across the Lake District with plenty of sunshine and just a scattering of fair weather cloud bubbling up into the afternoon. This cloud will bring a very small risk of a late afternoon shower. It will feel warm at height with light winds, and hot through the valleys floors. A dry and clear evening will follow.


Very good or excellent, but temporarily very poor where shrouded in any early patches of low cloud.

Hill fog

Patches of low cloud may push in from the east to affect northern and eastern Fells for a time around dawn. However, the fragments of low cloud will soon lift and disperse after dawn. Otherwise, nil hill fog.

Maximum winds above 500m

Easterly 15-20mph at first, but becoming easterly 10mph or less by midday.


Valleys Plus 15 Celsius rising to plus 25-27 Celsius in the afternoon. Falling to Plus 18 Celsius through the evening.
900 m Plus 13 Celsius, rising to Plus 16 Celsius through the afternoon.
Freezing level Well above the summits.



It will be a bright and sunny morning across the morning. However, the sunshine will become more hazy through the afternoon as cloud starts to thicken from the west, possibly bringing a few isolated showers to the area. Into the evening, showery outbreaks of rain will start to push in from the west bringing some heavy bursts to the Fells and also some hill fog.


Generally good or very good, but becoming moderate to poor in the showery rain later and very poor in the hill fog.

Hill fog

Any early fragments will soon clear after dawn leaving all Fells free of cloud through the morning and afternoon. Into the evening, however, periods of hill fog will develop above 500m; especially western Fells.

Maximum winds above 500m

Light and variable in direction during morning, but becoming westerly 15-20mph into the evening.


Valleys Plus 14 becoming 25 Celsius into the afternoon, before falling to 14 by late evening.
900 m Around 14 or 15 Celsius
Freezing level Well above the summits.



Sunny spells and scattered showers. However, there is the risk of more general showery outbreaks of rain may spreading down from the north later with strong northwesterly winds developing, but there is large uncertainty with regard to the location and timing of this rain.


A rather cloudy start with some drizzly outbreaks of rain and hill fog. This will likely break up through the day with sunny spells developing. However, a few heavy showers, perhaps thundery, may develop. Moderate to fresh northerly winds.


Variable cloud amounts and bright or sunny spells. Moderate northwesterly winds.
