-SNOW UPDATE - Scattered snow showers  mainly dying out into Saturday evening - we have about 3cm of frozen snow on the ground - all routes, including high level routes are reporting clear. HOWEVER, side roads and pavements in the Buxton area are all, covered with frozen snow, and are quite challenging - BEWARE!
-Saturday Evening and Night:
Mist patches and damp conditions developing widely - otherwise, a mainly dry evening, and cold night to Sunday, with light winds, and some clearer periods later in the night. Minimum Air Temperature -1 C.
Sunday:
After a cold start, warmer weather is on the way for Sunday, BUT the warm front arriving through Sunday, will hit the cold air standing over us - that is a recipe for snow! - the snow, which could be heavy for a time, is likely to last through the morning, before turning into rain through the afternoon, as the warm air prevails, and temperatures start to climb. Light winds to start the day, picking up later. Maximum Air Temperature 2 C.
Sunday Evening and Night:
A breezy night - and turning very windy later - becoming much more mild. Early evening rain, gradually clearing away, to leave a mainly dry night, with some mist patches and damp conditions, developing. Minimum Air Temperature 3 C.
Monday:
Monday, more mild, windy with some misty damp conditions - and patchy showers. Maximum Air Temperature 5 C.
Monday Evening and Night:
A breezy and fairly mild night - mainly dry but cloudy - some misty damp conditions. Minimum Air Temperature 4 C.

Tuesday, more mild again, windy with some misty damp conditions - and patchy showers arriving later. Wednesday, windy and mild, with showers and longer periods of rain. Thursday, a little cooler with showers and some bright periods.-

-UK Outlook for Thursday 25 Jan 2018 to Saturday 3 Feb 2018:
After a bright but brief colder and showery interlude at the end of the week with frost likely overnight it will become milder and changeable again. This means that many of us will see brighter, showery periods interspersed with bands of cloud and rain. Rain is likely to be heaviest in western parts with snow possible over the high ground, and it will be driest in the south and east. Also, it will be windy at times particularly in the northwest. However, as we head through to the end of January, it is likely to turn mainly dry and perhaps a touch colder, particularly in the south, with overnight frost and fog more likely here. Winds are expected to ease overall with strong winds becoming mostly restricted to the north.
UK Outlook for Sunday 4 Feb 2018 to Sunday 18 Feb 2018:
Early February is likely to bring relatively settled conditions with a good deal of dry weather, relatively light winds and frost and fog expected to form overnight. However spells of wet and windy weather are still likely across the north. There is considerable uncertainty at this stage however, as we head towards the middle of February we are most likely to see short spells of wet and windy weather move across the UK, interspersed with colder, brighter and drier interludes. Throughout this period temperatures are expected to average out at close to normal but it will be colder at times during the periods of more settled weather.-
