Mon 24th Mar 10:15 p.m. – A raw week ahead of us

After a gorgeous sunny day today we look set for an unsettled rather cold week with a raw easterly wind setting in. Up till now easterly winds have been absent this winter but now that “spring” is here we’re in for a prolonged spell of easterlies that’ll last right into at least the beginning of April. That’s likely to bring grey cloudy skies across the Peak District with showers from time to time and it’ll be cold enough for some sleet or even snow on the higher parts though very little is likely to settle except perhaps above 500 metres. Below about 300 metres it should only be rain.

Spring is ‘on hold’ for a while, I’m afraid.
