Scafell Pike Weather

Scafell Pike is located in the South Western quarter of the Lake District, about 12 miles inland from Irish Sea coast. I have included the BBC weather feeds for four villages located in the main valleys surrounding Scafell Pike - these are: Wasdale Head (Wasdale Valley), Seathwaite (Borrowdale Valley), Boot (Eskdale Valley), and Elterwater (Great Langdale Valley).

Please bear in mind the weather in the Lake District can be very localised, and subject to dramatic changes within short periods of time. This certainly applies to the Scafell Pike area with each of the surrounding valleys potentially having their own unique and changable weather.

It is also important to understand the weather on Scafell Pike summit may well be different to that in the valleys below. It is likely that the temperature will be much lower than those indicated in the feeds (which are taken at ground level). Furthermore, visibility and precipitation (mist/fog/rain/snow/sleet etc!) may also be different on the summit to that in the valleys - and not usually in a good way. So please be prepared.
