Sat 22nd Feb 9:15 a.m. – A fine morning

It’s a fine morning in the Peak District with long spells of sunshine and good visibility. There’s a cool westerly breeze, though. The current temperature in Tideswell is 5 deg  after an overnight low of 3 deg.

There’s a pretty good day in prospect with a lot of sunshine this morning. During the second half of the day it’ll probably gradually become a bit more cloudy but it’ll stay dry. The wind will back to SW or SSW and strengthen. By the afternoon it’ll be pretty strong over the edges and tops.

A bit of a downhill story for Sunday, I’m afraid. Even stronger SSW winds will bring cloudy weather and an increasing chance of rain. Hill fog will develop over the higher parts and the visibility generally won’t be as good as on Saturday.

The coming week sees a mild start but gradually getting colder later in the week. Still unsettled with rain from time to time and perhaps some sleet or even snow over the higher parts.
