Our aim at WalkLakes is to help you make the most of walking in the Lake District. We do that by searching out the best walks we can find from gentle to challenging and also by putting you in touch with other people who have walked in the Lake District via our forum.
If you want you can keep track of your walks using our web site and log how many hills you've climbed and of what type, be they Wainwrights, Birketts, Hewitts, Nuttalls, or Marilyns. You can also explore all the hills in the Lake District using our interactive map or throughout Great Britain using our hill finder.
We hope we can help you get more out of walking in the Lake District but do let us know if there's anything more we could do to help.
Occasionally heavy morning snow showers but drier afternoon. Strengthening northwesterly winds.
A bright start with occasional snow showers, these heavy at times and may merge, especially in the west to give a longer spell of snow, with temporary blizzard conditions over higher fells. The showers tend to die out from late morning and much of the afternoon looks dry with sunny spells. Remaining dry through the evening with clear spells. Any lying snow over higher fells like to drift or blow in the strengthening winds.
Visibility: Occasional cloud above 600m at first and again in afternoon, but becoming periods, perhaps persistent in west, above 450-600m for a time through the morning. Otherwise visibility very good falling to several kilometres in showers and a kilometre or less in heavy snow showers and blowing or drifting snow and near zero in temporary blizzards.
Daylight: dawn 07:32, sunrise 08:15, sunset 15:50, dusk 16:33
