Detailed mountain weather forecast: Snowdonia

Saturday

Weather

It will be generally cloudy through the early hours with showery outbreaks of rain and drizzle spreading from the north and increasing amounts of hill fog. Staying largely cloudy with further showery rain and drizzle through the morning, but then becoming somewhat drier with some brighter spells through the afternoon. Largely dry through the evening but rather cloudy at times. Quite a windy day at higher levels of the park.

Visibility

Generally good, but occasionally poor in rain and drizzle, especially during the morning. Moderate in any showery rain during the afternoon. Very poor in hill fog.

Hill fog

Fairly extensive hill fog developing through the early hours and becoming persistent above around 500m in western areas and 700 metres in eastern areas. Becoming more broken from mid-morning with just occasional patches above 700m for a time. Hill fog perhaps becoming more widespread and gradually lowering through the evening.

Maximum winds above 500m

25-30mph gusting 35-40mph at times over the highest summits.

Temperature

Valleys 13 degrees Celsius, rising to 18 degrees Celsius.
900 m Plus 9 Celsius
Freezing level Well above the summits.

Sunday

Weather

Mostly dry and cloudy during the overnight period, although the cloud may be thick enough to give the odd showery outbreak. Mainly dry conditions continuing through the morning, but an increasing risk of patchy rain and drizzle developing during the afternoon and evening along with widespread and persistent hill fog.

Visibility

Generally good during the morning, but moderate or poor in any showery outbreaks. Becoming largely moderate during the afternoon and poor in rain and drizzle. Very poor in hill fog.

Hill fog

Occasional patches (persistent on Snowdon Range on the coastal hills) above 400-600m during the overnight period. Becoming less extensive with bases rising to perhaps 700-800m during the morning, but soon lowering and becoming widespread across the park. By late-afternoon, most hills above 300-400m will be shrouded in persistent hill fog making navigation difficult.

Maximum winds above 500m

15-20mph with occasional gusts 25-30mph for most of the day, but increasing to 25mph gusting 35-40mph later in the day.

Temperature

Valleys 11 degrees Celsius, rising to 18 degrees Celsius.
900 m Plus 9 Celsius
Freezing level Well above the summits.

Outlook

Monday

It will probably be a cloudy morning with a risk of some occasional rain and drizzle. Through the day, it is likely to become generally dry with some sunshine developing during the afternoon. Light to moderate westerly or northwesterly winds.

Tuesday

Probably dry on Tuesday, but with large uncertainties regarding cloud amounts. Some bright or sunny periods are likely and these may well be most prolonged in western areas of the park. Light to moderate easterly or southeasterly winds developing.

Wednesday

Any early mist or fog patches should quickly clear to leave a dry and fine day with a good deal of sunshine, particularly first thing. During the day, the cloud may well build, however this should stay largely above the summits. Winds are likely to be light and variable.
