10 Day Forecast for Snowdon

Page loading ...

A dry night, with plenty of warm sunshine tomorrow.

This Evening and Tonight:

Any showers will ease this evening, with sunshine to end the day. This will give way to clear spells overnight. With light winds some patchy mist and fog may form though. Minimum Temperature 7C.


Any early mist and fog will soon clear, with unbroken sunshine through the day for most. It will be another very warm day inland, with cooler conditions at the coast. Maximum Temperature 24C.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

It will stay very warm and sunny, but the risk of thunderstorms will return. Patchy mist and fog will also be possible overnight.

Day 6 to 15

The Bank Holiday weekend will be mostly fine and sunny, after any early mist and fog has cleared. Scattered thunderstorms could affect southern and central areas at times however, with mist and low cloud possibly affecting the east coast. It will very warm or hot in the south and west, but often much cooler near eastern coasts. There will also be a brisk easterly wind across southern areas. Similar conditions will prevail into next week, but some longer spells of heavy, thundery rain may move northwards into central parts. Into the beginning of June confidence is low, but it will most likely remain overall drier and warmer than average. However there will be an increasing chance of more unsettled, cooler conditions developing.

Day 16 to 30

For the beginning of June there is low confidence in the type of weather pattern expected across the UK. Conditions are likely to become generally more unsettled as we head towards the middle of the month, with periods of rain or showers being more frequent and widespread. There will still be some more settled spells at times, these most likely in the south and southeast. Temperatures will probably be near or slightly above normal, but there is continued potential for further very warm spells.
