Tue 25th Mar 7:45 p.m. – An unpleasant week

Today has been pretty grotty across the Peak District with pretty well non-stop rain. It often wasn’t very heavy but with extensive grey low cloud it hasn’t been a very inspiring day. Very much on the cold side too, with a max temperature here in Tideswell of only 6 deg.

For the rest of the week we’re going to see nagging, raw easterly winds with quite a lot of cloud and showery outbreaks of rain from time to time. It’ll be cold enough for some sleet or snow on the highest parts but no significant amounts of snow are expected on the ground.

Into the weekend we’ll probably see the easterly winds continuing but there are some signs that it’ll warm up just a fraction.

Spring is still ‘on hold’!
