Friday, 30th July

Still some uncertainty in the forecast for Friday due to a low pressure moving east across southern England however it looks to be a dry morning with some showers developing in the afternoon. Perhaps some early morning mist and fog which may be slow to clear.
Northwesterly 5-10 mph.
Early mist and fog might be slow to clear with visibility becoming poor for some of the early morning period especially around northern fells with broken cloud around 6-700m. Some brightness in the south with moderate or good visibility here. In the afternoon visibility will improve for all however patches of low cloud around 700m may linger around the fells.
Chance of cloud free summits
60% increasing to 80%, broken low cloud in the north in the morning will lift and clear a little later. More cloud breaks likely in the south of the Lake District.
