Sun 2nd Mar 9:15 a.m. – Spring on the way?

It’s a damp, murky morning across the Peak District after a wet night. The hills above about 400m are shrouded in cloud. We’ll see a gradual improvement through the morning and it’s likely to become dry for a while in the late morning and early afternoon, perhaps with a bit of sun. Heavy rain then looks like sweeping in during the late afternoon and evening.

We’ve got a few more days of rather cold and unsettled weather with spells of rain and perhaps some sleet. During the latter half of the week, though, there’s an increasing probability that high pressure will develop close to the British Isles bringing the first real spring weather to the Peak District towards the end of the week and into next weekend. It looks like turning into the first lengthy spell of settled weather that we’ve had this year.
