Weather hazards

Strong sunlight High likelihood Hide detail

Harmful UV levels from sunlight increase with altitude giving a greater risk of sunburn and eye damage, even on some overcast days. On breezy days, the cooling effect of wind on exposed skin may disguise any feeling of sunburn until it is too late. If there is snow cover, glare increases the effect of UV rays especially on the eyes. It is advisable to wear sun block, protective clothing such as a long-sleeved top and hat and have good quality eye protection.

Weather

Long clear spells overnight, perhaps a few low level mist and fog patches. Any overnight mist and fog patches soon clear to leave a dry day with long spells of sunshine.

Chance of cloud-free mountain/hill tops at 600m

Close to 100% with little cloud expected below summit level.

Visibility

Risk of visibility a kilometre or less at low levels in any overnight mist or fog patches, otherwise very good or excellent with good panoramic views of surrounding hills.

Meteorologist's view

Valley temperatures may dip to around 4 Celsius by dawn, then rise to plus 20 or 21 Celsius in by early afternoon. With almost unbroken sunshine there is considerable risk of dehydration and sunburn.
