Sun 23rd Feb 9:15 a.m. – A windy day

A cloudy windy day across the Peak District today and very mild. There will be a little rain from time to time and this may become a bit more persistent and heavier during the afternoon. It’s currently 9 deg in Tideswell, very mild for a February morning.

The main feature of the weather today will be the strength of the southerly wind. In open areas gusts over 50 mph will be frequent and there’s likely to be occasional gusts to 60-70 mph. Not a good day for the edges and tops.

The coming week will continue the unsettled theme. It’ll start off mild but then cool down and in the second half of the week we’ll be getting some night frosts and probably some sleet.
