Updated: 1720 on Sun 08 Dec 2013
Rather cloudy for much of the day, with some light rain at times. The widespread presence of hill fog, particularly over the south-facing fells, will cause difficulty in navigating around the park. Although it will be another very mild day, the combination of gale force winds and often persistent rain or drizzle will make it feel cool over the higher ground.
Very good, but poor in persistent rain or drizzle and hill fog.
Occasional broken or blanket fog above 500m.
Maximum wind speeds above 500m
Southerly 45-55mph with gusts of 65-70mph during the morning, particularly over the fell tops. Temporarily easing to 35mph during the afternoon.
Valleys - Plus 6 Celsius, rising to 11 Celsius.
