Fri 25 Jul 2014

After a clear and mild night, it will be another fine day across the Lake District with plenty of sunshine and just a scattering of fair weather cloud bubbling up into the afternoon. This cloud will bring a very small risk of a late afternoon shower. It will feel warm at height with light winds, and hot through the valleys floors. A dry and clear evening will follow.

Sat 26 Jul 2014

It will be a bright and sunny morning across the morning. However, the sunshine will become more hazy through the afternoon as cloud starts to thicken from the west, possibly bringing a few isolated showers to the area. Into the evening, showery outbreaks of rain will start to push in from the west bringing some heavy bursts to the Fells and also some hill fog.

Visibility

Generally good or very good, but becoming moderate to poor in the showery rain later and very poor in the hill fog.

Hill Fog

Any early fragments will soon clear after dawn leaving all Fells free of cloud through the morning and afternoon. Into the evening, however, periods of hill fog will develop above 500m; especially western Fells.

Max wind above 500m

Light and variable in direction during morning, but becoming westerly 15-20mph into the evening.

Temperature

Valleys:
Plus 14 becoming 25 Celsius into the afternoon, before falling to 14 by late evening.
800m:
Around 14 or 15 Celsius
Freezing level:
Well above the summits.

Sun 27 Jul 2014

Sunny spells and scattered showers. However, there is the risk of more general showery outbreaks of rain may spreading down from the north later with strong northwesterly winds developing, but there is large uncertainty with regard to the location and timing of this rain.

Issued at: 1553 on Thu 24 Jul 2014
