It doesn't seem likely that the temperature would hit freezing, even on an exposed, elevated moor like that one, particularly in the first days of September.
In September of last year
, the minimum temperature reached anywhere in the UK was -1.2C, but that was both further north and at a much higher elevation (being way up in the highlands of Scotland), and came far later in the month - the 19th. In tonight's Mountain Area forecast on the Met Office website, for example, the freezing point is stated as "above the peaks/summits" for all areas, meaning that the temperatures will stay above freezing all over the UK.
