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.
A few outbreaks of sleet and snow in strong southwesterly winds, freezing conditions once again.
A dull, damp day on the fells with heavier rain later.
Cloudy overnight with outbreaks of sleet and snow this will continue during the morning. Quite a dull day with lots of low cloud around and poor visibility at times. Perhaps drier for a time in the afternoon with a few brighter spells especially in the east but low cloud filling in again later as a band of rain and sleet moves east in the evening. Freezing level rises above the summits in the evening so it will mainly fall as rain later on.
Visibility: Mostly very poor with extensive low cloud with bases around 4-500m in the morning. Visibility improving for a time in the afternoon but becoming poor in the evening as heavy rain moves across the area. Cloud bases slightly higher in the east and a few sunny intervals are possible in the east in the afternoon.
Daylight: dawn 07:40, sunrise 08:21, sunset 16:24, dusk 17:05
