The Weather in Nidderdale

HLFNL_2747 ,48cm

Like all hill country Nidderdale's weather may vary from the general weather forecast and there can also be wide variations within the dale at any one time. The national forecasts and reports are good starting points although it is generally advisable to act with caution when heading outdoors and to be prepared with waterproof clothing and extra layers. It is also helpful to note the effects of windchill which can be significant  in exposed countryside. This is especially the case when visiting hill top sites which will often be bleaker than the general forecasts suggest.


The general forecast for the area may be obtained from the Met Office, metcheck or from the BBC.
