Wed 19th Feb 9:15 a.m. A murky morning

A damp and murky morning across the Peak District with extensive low cloud. The current temperature in Tideswell is 6 deg so pretty mild for a February morning.  There’s been steady slight rain since before dawn. Nevertheless, if you are looking to get out of doors today the prospects are pretty good. The rain should die away in the next hour or so and the cloud base will lift, leading to a dry and bright day, perhaps even with some sunny intervals.

Make the most of today, though, as the rest of the week and into the weekend doesn’t look very promising with a lot of wind and rain and possibly even some sleet.

Tideswell statistics for the past 24 hours:

Max temperature:            9.7  (didn’t quite make the magic 10 deg!)

Min temperature:             3.8

Rain:                                    0.9 mm

Sunshine yesterday:         1.3 hours
