The climate of the Lake District (England)
The Lake District is an area in the north west of England. The area was formed during the last Ice Age. With the withdrawal of the glaciers high hills and deep valleys with lakes were formed. This gives the landscape its rugged and untamed character. The highest summits in England can be found in the Lake District. The highest summit is Scafell Pike at 978 meters. The beautiful scenery and the overwhelming landscape make this a beloved destination. The situation in combination with the lakes and altitude make this one of the wettest areas in England. About 2,000 millimeters of annual precipitation falls on average. The total amount differs from place to place. Seathwaite gets about 3,100 millimeters and Keswick only 1,407 millimeters of precipitation. There are large differences within the region. The differences are caused by your location towards the summits and lakes. At higher altitudes snow is not uncommon. During the winter there will be snow on the highest peaks for about 60 days. Extreme weather conditions are uncommon. However, the high humidity figures explain why foggy conditions frequently occur.
