Lake District Weekend Weather

Well it looks like it will be quite a wet one this weekend. There's a big wet front set to pass through tonight (Friday) from the south so Saturday morning will be a bit of a soggy one, although it looks set to clear up after lunch with the worst of the rain affecting the southern fells. What might be more of a problem is the wind; with wind speeds of up to 65 mph and cloud cover down to 400, walking on the tops could be an interesting experience. Temperatures at ground level should eb around 7c while it will be more like 4c at height with significant wind chill.
All in all it's a shopping and cafe day tomorrow - unless you want to get out on the lakes (but even then you'll get blown around a bit).

Sunday is looking like a better day with definite breaks in the cloud bringing some sunshine into our lives. The cloud cover when it's there still looks to be quite low though so watch out on the fells as visibility in the clag will be minimal. The wind however will definitely have dropped a few notches and should make walking a less arduous task but still up to 40 mph while the rain will have eased off to just the occasional shower which could occur pretty much anywhere.
A better day to get out but take your waterproofs as you could still get caught.
