SaturdayGale or severe gale force northwesterly winds will be a major hazard for hillwalkers. The very strong wind combined with sub-zero temperatures at most levels will result in severe wind-chill and risk of hypothermia. Otherwise sunny spells and snow showers. Showers mainly in the west with hills east of Keswick and Ambleside staying mainly dry.
We could have done with it being a couple of weekends ago as there has also been a thaw this week, and I understand most of the snow has now gone.... typical, Oh well hopefully we will find some patches to have a play on. I will be taking the camera so will be posting some photos next week.
