Met Office Forecast

North West

Generally cloudy with the odd bright spell at times.

This Evening and Tonight:

A milder night than last night, though temperatures will drop close to freezing under any clear spells. A chance of the odd spot of drizzle, particularly for Cumbria, where cloud is thicker. Otherwise remaining dry with light winds. Minimum Temperature 1C.

Saturday:

A largely cloudy day but any areas of drizzle during the morning tending to fade away to leave a dry afternoon with a few bright or sunny spells. Light winds. Maximum Temperature 8C.

Sunday to Tuesday:

Remaining mostly dry. Often fairly cloudy skies with perhaps some drizzle over the hills. Some sunshine is likely at times with patchy frost and fog overnight where skies stay clear.

UK: day 6-7 and week 2:

A largely cloudy start to this period, with perhaps some isolated fog forming under clear skies in the south, otherwise largely dry and fine here. A risk of some patchy rain in the far west, however, likely to be brighter in the east. A band of rain arrives later into the northwest, accompanied by some stronger winds, tracking southeastwards, with blustery showers following into the northwest, before returning settled by the end of the week. Temperatures likely to be close to average in the south, whereas milder in the north. Settled conditions looking to continue to dominate through the remainder of January, however, rain or showers at times for the north and northwest, with occasional strong winds here. Heading into February there is an increasing likelihood of more unsettled conditions.

UK: week 3 and 4:

Early February is likely to see a continuation of a north/south split with more settled and cloudy weather expected in the south, and generally drier than average, while the north will be more changeable, milder, with some spells of rain. There is an increased likelihood of more unsettled conditions becoming established, with the northwest likely to be the wettest area, but showers or longer spells of rain may spread to most areas at times, with the southeast likely to be the driest. Spells of strong winds are likely to develop more widely at times. Temperatures likely to be near or slightly above average although short lived colder interludes are possible. Any snow likely to be restricted to high ground in the north.

Day length is dusk to dawn. Times will vary a little if there is a hill on the horizon.

It should still be light enough to read at dawn and dusk, so there will be enough light for walking even earlier (later).

Notes

  • The moon's phase or fracillum (percentage of the moon illuminated) doesn't vary much with location.
  • A full moon is not just bigger, its much brighter. A half moon ('50%') give less than 5% of the illumination of a full moon. You can walk with a half moon if its high in the sky (after dusk for a growing moon, before dawn for a shrinking moon).
  • Sky glow (light reflected by air or clouds) from nearby cities, and especially snow on the ground also effect light levels.
  • Times will vary a few minutes, as (i) these figures are for the centre of the county the walk is in, (ii) if there are hills on the horizon, and (iii) if you are on a hill
  • Of course, you need a cloudless night as well!

Met Office Mountain Forecast

Issued: 1800 on 2022-01-21 for Lake District

Today

Mainly dry and cloudy. Cold and breezy with low cloud on the tops.

Summary Mainly cloudy overnight, patchy frost in the east under any clear breaks. Cloudy across most fells but the odd bright spell is possible, mainly to the east of Helvellyn and Ambleside. Staying largely dry except for a few spots of rain but amounting to very little. Staying cloudy in the evening preventing a frost.
Chance of Cloud free tops 20% in west, 40% in east.
Ground conditions Date: Friday 21 January 2022 Location: Catstyecam summit at 14:55 Full report: A windy day in the fells with little change in the ground conditions compared to the last few days. The wind speeds were higher than indicated in today's readings and estimated to be in the region of 30-35mph. The vast majority of the fells are snow-free up to and including the highest summits and any remaining old snow / névé is generally (but not exclusively) found on steep north through east-facing aspects above 700m. In these locations cover is quite patchy, however, some of the patches are quite large. Small cornices are also present around corrie rims and should be given a wide berth. All of the snow encountered today was relatively firm and required the use of an ice axe and crampons/microspikes to move over safely. A slip or trip in these conditions, if not quickly arrested could have serious consequences. Some ice was also present down to lower elevations today but was relatively easy to avoid. Striding and Swirral edge can be done almost entirely on rock, however, a steep bank of hard snow is present on their exit slopes and requires good care to cross safely. Full winter clothing (warm and waterproof) including hats and gloves, a map and compass, and headtorch are all essential items for anyone venturing into the fells. Temperature: plus 0.9 C, Maximum wind speed 13.3 mph, Wind chill: minus 2.2 C, Average wind speed: 6.1 mph.
Visibility Areas of low cloud and fog above 400 or 500m, most persistent across western and central fells giving navigational difficulties. Patchier cloud across eastern fells with higher slopes clearing at times. Mostly good visibility away from low cloud.

Ice Above summits overnight, falling to 800m in morning.
Visibility Areas of low cloud and fog above 500m, most persistent across western and central fells giving navigational difficulties. Patchier cloud across eastern fells with higher slopes clearing at times. Mostly good visibility away from low cloud.
Wind West or Southwest 15 to 20mph, gusting 30mph on high ridges and summits.
Temp Plus 1 Celsius, falling to Minus 1 Celsius. (at high level)
Day 2

Mostly cloudy with the odd spot of rain and summit snow. A little brightness, mainly in the east. Light southwesterly winds. Freezing level just above summits.

Day 3

Mostly cloudy with the odd spot of rain and summit snow. A little brightness, mainly in the east. Light southwesterly winds. Freezing level 900m.

Day 4
