Light snow showers
Pre-dawn, there is a chance of successive snow showers moving in from the Irish Sea to affect similar parts of the west of the Park, perhaps giving some snow accumulations in places. It should be a drier and clearer morning in the east, much colder than of late despite the lighter wind. It should become generally cloudy as the day goes on, with some more general snow flurries possible later. Note: gales are still possible early on.
Starting good, becoming very good for a time before moderating later. Locally poor in snow showers.
Milder air moving over cold ground is likely to lead to widespread blanket hill fog at 500m later.
Northwesterly 35-40mph in showers, easing later.
|Valleys||Minus 3 becoming plus 3 Celsius.|
|600 m||Minus 3 becoming zero Celsius.|
|Freezing level||Rising from the surface to clear the peaks later.|
Less cold than Friday, with the best of limited cloud breaks likely towards the east, perhaps giving an early frost. Otherwise rather cloudy throughout, with hill fog possible over the higher peaks, perhaps giving a little light rain and drizzle at times.
Moderate becoming good.
Broken hill fog around 500m.
|Valleys||Minus 1 becoming plus 7 Celsius.|
|600 m||Plus 4 Celsius.|
|Freezing level||Above the summits.|
A similar day to Saturday, still a lot of cloud around, however a slightly greater chance of sunny spells as high pressure builds to the south. Moderate westerly winds.
With patchy rain having moved through overnight, perhaps a damp and rather cloudy start. Although the cloudy theme will generally persist, some sunny spells are still likely with light westerly winds.
Similar to previous days, although with a risk of slow to clear fog as southwesterly winds become light.
