High confidence for unsettled conditions over the next couple of days but lower confidence for exact timing of rain and height of cloud bases. High confidence for more settled conditions in the latter part of the week.
A cloudy evening for most of the National Park with outbreaks of light rain and drizzle, rain will be heavier in the west with cloud below the summits. The rain will clear east later in the night with some clear spells by midnight.
Gale force winds (gusts over 50mph) make walking difficult and strenuous with a potential to be blown over by gusts. There is often a marked increase in winds through cols or on exposed ridges and summits. Distances can take longer to cover and compass bearings become harder to follow accurately.
Poor visibility presents challenging route finding conditions. Visibility could be significantly less than 50 metres in all directions with few or no visual references, especially on featureless moors or plateaux. Distances become hard to judge and cliff or cornice edges can be difficult to recognise. These conditions require good navigational skills. There is a risk of white-out conditions when mist or fog is combined with extensive snow cover.
A fine dry start to the day but cloud thickening with patchy light rain and drizzle in the afternoon, Southerly winds strengthening in the afternoon and evening.

The early hours of Tuesday will be generally clear and dry with some mist and fog patches developing, there will be some sunny spells around breakfast time however cloud will increase during the morning becoming thicker and lowering down over the fells by late morning. The cloud will thicken enough to give some patchy light rain and drizzle which will increase in intensity at times during the afternoon and evening. The best conditions will be in the more sheltered eastern fells.
90%, most of the fell tops will be clear first thing, by lunchtime 20% in the western fells and 40% around eastern fells like High Raise. During the afternoon even the eastern Fells will become shrouded in cloud.
Very good visibility in the morning but falling to a few kilometres or less in the rain and drizzle in the afternoon.
The southerly winds will strengthen during the afternoon with gale force gusts likely on higher fells in the evening.
No recent ground conditions report available.
A cloudy day with outbreaks of rain and drizzle becoming heavy at times, cloud bases are expected to be well below summits until late afternoon. Feeling cooler as the winds swing round to a north westerly direction later in the day. Cloud and rain will clear to the south by early evening to give a dry evening.
Southwesterly winds 25-35mph with gusts around 40mph on summits, later winds will veer Northwesterly and ease to 10-15mph with gusts 20-25mph.
10% chance of cloud free summits during the day increasing to 70% by early evening particularly around the northern fells.
Poor or very poor during the day with little chance of any views from the summits becoming moderate or good later in the day.
