.... Weather Forecast for Buxton & The Peak District:  ...

--
-
Thursday Evening and Night:
Remaining largely dry through the night. There will be a good deal of cloud and this, along with a steady breeze should prevent a frost. Minimum Temperature 4C.
Friday:
Staying mostly dry for most on Friday with plenty of cloud and one or two sunny intervals. Becoming increasingly windy through the day. Maximum Temperature 9C.
Outlook for Saturday to Monday:
Saturday windy, mild but largely dry with some sunshine. Dry and fine to start on Sunday but scattered showers appearing through the day . A sunny, cold start on Monday, wind and rain later.
UK Outlook for Tuesday 10 Mar 2015 to Thursday 19 Mar 2015:
Widespread, locally heavy, rain and strong winds, mainly in the north, will clear north-eastwards through Tuesday morning. More settled conditions will then develop for a time with a cold, locally frosty night to follow, especially in the north. Further outbreaks of rain, locally heavy, with strengthening winds will then spread across the UK early Wednesday before becoming drier again later on. From Thursday there looks to be generally more settled conditions across most parts of the UK as high pressure remains close to the east. However, occasional weather systems will likely still bring cloudier interludes with rain, mainly to northern and western parts. Away from cloud and rain temperatures will often be near or above average leaving conditions often feeling pleasant in sunshine.
UK Outlook for Friday 20 Mar 2015 to Friday 3 Apr 2015:
It looks probable that pressure will remain higher than average across the UK at first. This would bring generally drier than average conditions, but it is likely that there could also be some cloud at times, with some occasional rain or showers, particularly across the north. There are signs that more of a northwest-southeast split will develop in late March with wetter than average conditions probably developing in the northwest, whilst drier conditions and higher than average pressure perhaps persist in the southeast.-


Did you know that there is a Solar eclipse
(where the moon comes between us, and the sun, and blocks out the suns rays) - at around 09.30, on the morning of Friday March 20th 2015 - It will be a TOTAL eclipse , further North than the UK - such as in the Faroe Islands -where it will be a total eclipse - In the UK, it will still be a very spectacular, PARTIAL eclipse, and will look something like this below - still be enough (as last time) to stop all the birds singing, thinking it is night-time!
