Detailed mountain weather forecast: Peak District

Tuesday

Weather

It will be a dry night, with valley mist and fog patches forming in more sheltered spots in the very light wind. These patches will soon disperse during the morning to give warm sunny spells. 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.

Visibility

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. No hill fog expected.

Maximum winds above 400m

Northwesterly 25mph.

Temperature

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

Wednesday

Weather

Although some early sunny spells are likely, on balance it will be a cloudier day than Tuesday, with a westerly wind bringing the odd spell of light rain during the afternoon.

Visibility

Good.

Hill fog

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

Maximum winds above 400m

Westerly 30mph.

Temperature

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

Outlook

Thursday

This three-day period will see an increasing propensity towards cloudier and cooler conditions. Thursday should see moderate southwesterly winds, some sunny spells but also some showers, the showers most numerous during the afternoon.

Friday

Brightness is likely to be limited on Friday, with moderate, occasionally gusty southwesterly winds feeding areas of heavy and potentially thundery showers into the area.

Saturday

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.
