The rain may become prolonged at times, perhaps locally heavy, across western areas through the afternoon and evening. Windy with gales over the peaks, especially at first, but not as strong as Tuesday. Low risk of a significant wind chill, mainly at first. Hill fog above 400 metres later.

Thu 23 Oct 2014

Generally cloudy with occasional light rain, the rain particularly over the west and north of the Park, but also perhaps some brighter intervals occurring across eastern areas. The southwest breeze will bring patches of hill fog above 500 metres to western areas, especially early and late in the day. The wind will continue to decrease, becoming light. Temperatures will be close to average, but the significant wind chill of recent days will not be present due to the lighter wind.

Probably improving good through the evening. Light winds.

Any residual cloud and rain will quickly clear away southeastwards. If it has not already arrived clearer conditions will follow, along with isolated showers. Many places will remain dry through the daytime, with very good visibility. However the wind will gradually strengthen, with gales developing through the evening over the highest ground, bringing a risk of a significant wind chill.
