Mountain Area forecast In the mountains the weather can be dangerous. It can change in less than an hour and from one peak or the next. That is why it is always important to check the weather before you go. Florence Mountain National Park Tuesday 15th of October Weather There is going to be some fog in the valley in the early hours, but the fog will disappear mid-morning. Around 11 the sun will be out and it will be dry, but cloudy. Up in the north of the park temperatures will rise to about 18 degrees Celsius. So it will be quite warm for the time of year. In the afternoon it is going to be cloudy again and there is going to be a chance of showers in the west of the park. Visibility Overall the visibility is quite good, but poor in the valleys during the early hours. At the end of the day it may turn again in the west of the park because of the showers. 87 ALL ABOUT THE WEATHER - COME RAIN OR SHINE - KGT
