Fri 21st Feb – 9:00 a.m. – An icy morning

Friday got off to an icy start in Tideswell but the ice has already melted by 9 a.m. It’s a sunny, breezy , cold morning with the temperature currently on 2.5 deg.

We’ll see cloud building through the morning and there’s every chance of showers developing across the Peak District from late morning onwards. Some of these will be heavy with the chance of hail and thunder while across the higher parts there may well be some sleet. With a mix of strong winds and showers it’s not a great day for the edges and tops.

We have a very windy weekend to look forward to, especially Sunday. It’ll be mild, though, with winds in the SW. Probably mostly dry on Saturday but there’s potential for increasingly heavy rain on Sunday. Without doubt, Saturday will be the better day of the weekend but due to the wind it won’t be a great day for the higher parts.

Into next week I think we can expect colder weather to return, probably with some sleet or even snow in the latter part of the week.
