Fri 01 Aug 2014

Cloudy overnight, with some patchy light rain and drizzle over the fells, and mist patches in some of the valleys. During the morning rain may become heavier and more persistent, particularly over western hills such as the Scafells and the Coniston fells. Further north and east towards Helvellyn and Skiddaw may do better with some breaks in the cloud and brighter spells. During the evening, rain will begin to die out over the whole park leaving a mainly dry night, with the exception of the odd light shower.

After a dry start to the night, rain will push up from the south reaching all parts by dawn. Some of this rain is expected to be on the heavy side, particularly on southern and eastern fells where some very high rainfall totals could accumulate through the day, resulting in streams and rivers becoming full and difficult to cross. Rain will continue through the evening.
