Detailed mountain weather forecast: Peak District



After a chilly start with possible haze in some valleys, another dry day is in prospect. Long spells of strong spring sunshine are again likely through the morning and early afternoon, though late in the day increasing amounts of high cloud will turn the evening sunshine rather hazy. Cloud will continue to thicken into the evening.


Good or very good, but moderate at first in any valley haze.

Hill fog

None expected.

Maximum winds above 400m

South or southwest with gusts 25 possibly 30 mph by evening.


Valleys Plus 2 becoming plus 16 Celsius.
600 m Plus 5 becoming plus 12 Celsius.
Freezing level Above the summits.



A cloudier day is in prospect on Thursday with a chance of some patchy rain through the morning. Mainly dry for the afternoon and evening and perhaps becoming brighter too. Feeling cooler than Wednesday with winds becoming fresh to strong northwesterly across peaks.


Good or very good but moderate in any rain. Poor in hill fog.

Hill fog

Some hill fog likely for a time through the morning above around 500 to 600 meters in association with rain.

Maximum winds above 400m

Westerly 25 to 30 with gusts 40 mph likely across the higher peaks.


Valleys Plus 5 becoming plus 14 Celsius.
600 m Plus 6 becoming plus 9 Celsius.
Freezing level Above the summits.



On Friday a chilly and rather cloudy day is expected, but it should remain dry with light to moderate northeasterly winds expected. Hill fog expected on ground above 500m mainly at first. Some brightness developing in the afternoon.


On Saturday another mainly dry day is expected. Cloudy at first though sunny spells becoming more prevalent during the afternoon. Winds light freshening to moderate and from the east or southeast.
