Detailed mountain weather forecast: Peak District



A dry and largely clear night, bar the odd shower across southern parts. Temperatures will fall sharply under the clear skies with a grass frost possible in some valleys. After a cold start, it will be a largely fine morning with plenty of sunshine. However, this sunshine will become increasingly hazy through the afternoon as high level cloud pushes in from the southwest. Cloud will thicken further during the evening.


Excellent at first, but decreasing to good through the afternoon and evening.

Hill fog

Ragged patches possible above 500m overnight, mainly across southern hills. Otherwise, nil hill fog expected.

Maximum winds above 400m

West to southwesterly 10mph, backing southerly and increasing to 25mph by late evening.


Valleys Plus 2 becoming 18 Celsius
600 m Plus 7 becoming 10 Celsius
Freezing level Above the summits.



A wet and rather windy Bank Holiday Monday over the park. Outbreaks of rain will become increasingly heavy and persistent through the morning. Strong winds will develop leading to some difficult conditions across the peaks.


Generally good below the cloud bases, but moderate to poor in the rain and very poor where shrouded in the cloud.

Hill fog

Extensive cloud throughout much of the day above 500m with patches likely down to 300m, particularly over forest canopies.

Maximum winds above 400m

Southeasterly 35mph gusts 45mph.


Valleys Plus 9 becoming 17 Celsius
600 m Plus 8 becoming 11 Celsius
Freezing level Above the summits.



Rain will tend to clear through the morning, although it is likely to remain rather windy for a time, especially over the summits. Mainly dry and brighter conditions with isolated showers will follow, with winds gradually easing later in the day.


After a cool start, a dry and bright day will follow with plenty of sunshine. However, cloud will thicken from the west later in the day.


Unsettled day with outbreaks of rain and strong winds spreading across the park, clearing to showers later in the day.
