Detailed mountain weather forecast: Peak District



Some sunny spells at first, although cloud will increase through the morning. While conditions will still remain relatively pleasant into the afternoon, greater cloud cover is expected to move in from the northwest on a freshening breeze, limiting sunny intervals and perhaps delivering the odd spot of rain very locally.


Perhaps locally briefly poor in valley mist, otherwise very good falling to good as cloud moves in later.

Hill fog

Early mist and valley fog patches will soon clear. Occasional hill fog above 400 metres at first. This lifting, but further patches above 600 metres through the afternoon as cloud thickens.

Maximum winds above 400m

Northwesterly 25mph.


Valleys Plus 13 becoming 21 Celsius.
600 m Plus 15 Celsius.
Freezing level Well above the summits



Although some early sunny spells are likely, on balance it will be a cloudier day than Tuesday, with a fairly moderate westerly wind. The odd shower is possible too, especially to the north towards Saddleworth.


Good to very good.

Hill fog

Well-broken over the highest windward peaks first thing, rising clear by mid-morning.

Maximum winds above 400m

Westerly 30mph.


Valleys Plus 12 becoming 21 Celsius.
600 m Plus 13 Celsius.
Freezing level Well above the summits.



Moderate west or southwesterly winds will ease today, but a variable amount of cloud mixed in with some sunny spells and scattered showers, mostly light and brief in nature.


Brightest and driest during the morning on Friday, but cloud is likely to thicken with an increasing risk of heavy and potentially thundery shower, these most likely during the afternoon and evening. Light southerly winds.


Details are relatively uncertain by Saturday, however the most likely scenario is for further sunshine and scattered showers in continuing moderate southwesterly winds. The showers again have the potential to generate thunder.
