Detailed mountain weather forecast: Peak District



Overcast with extensive hill fog, this lifting and breaking during the latter part of this morning then feeling warm and humid in hazy sunny spells. Winds from an easterly or northeasterly direction mean the west of the park will brighten up first, although, unlike recent days, even the east may also have brighter skies with time. Remaining dry into the evening.


Poor or very poor in mist and hill fog, becoming moderate, perhaps good by afternoon.

Hill fog

Broken to overcast above 200 to 300m in the early hours and at first during the day, lifting through the morning then mostly above the hills by evening.

Maximum winds above 400m

Easterly or Northeasterly 15 to 20 mph at first


Valleys Plus 11 becoming plus 19 Celsius.
600 m Plus 15 Celsius.
Freezing level Well above the peaks.



Cloud will thicken once again during the early hours of Saturday. Mainly dry to start but an increasing chance of rain or drizzle through the day, especially in the afternoon, the odd heavy outbreak possible, although perhaps clearing in the evening. As it does so much clearer and fresher conditions will follow.


Poor or very poor in mist and hill fog, becoming moderate to poor in rain. Improving later to good, perhaps very good by evening.

Hill fog

Broken bases 300 to 400 meters at first and in any persistent rain. Improving gradually through the afternoon, then especially during the evening when cloud should lift and break to be above even the higher peaks.

Maximum winds above 400m

Easterly or Northeasterly 20-25mph over the peaks at first.


Valleys Plus 11 becoming plus 19 Celsius.
600 m Plus 15 Celsius falling to 10 Celsius by evening.
Freezing level Well above the peaks.



A dry day with much improved visibility and cloud bases compared to recent days. A much fresher feel, too, especially first thing. Winds will be light.


Another dry day with light winds and lengthy clear or sunny spells. Again, it will be chilly early on and late in the day, but will feel pleasantly warm by afternoon in any sunshine.


The theme of dry weather should last through most of Tuesday, although there is a chance of some thicker cloud, freshening winds and outbreaks of rain edging in from the northwest.
