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

- Friday Night:
A mainly cloudy, but dry night - some mist patches may form later in the night. Light easterly winds continuing. Minimum Temperature 8 C.
Saturday:
After a rather cloudy, and in places misty start, sunny periods will develop, and the day will be warm again. It is quite likely that there will be isolated showers appearing later in the afternoon - and we may even catch a thundery downpour. Maximum Temperature 18 C. Any showers will clear in the evening, to a dry night.
Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:
The easterly breeze picking up through this period.  A warm day, with bright or sunny spells through Sunday - and a good chance of us catching a few showers in the afternoon. Monday warm again, with much more in the way of sunshine, and a much lower chance of catching a shower.  Tuesday cloudier, and a little cooler - again there is a chance of passing showers.-
-UK, longer term, general, outlook:
-UK Outlook for Wednesday 11 May 2016 to Friday 20 May 2016:
Southern and central parts of the UK are likely to see occasional outbreaks of rain or showers, which could be heavy and thundery at times, but also some drier and brighter spells. Further north there will be drier conditions with more in the way of bright or sunny spells. Cooler and cloudier around eastern coasts, especially at first. Any outbreaks of rain across the south will become confined to the continent by mid-late May leaving plenty of dry weather across the UK, before frontal systems try to push into northwestern parts. Temperatures will be generally warm or very warm, but near normal for southern parts in any wetter spells, and below for eastern coasts. By mid May temperatures are likely to return to near normal for the time of year.
UK Outlook for Saturday 21 May 2016 to Saturday 4 Jun 2016:
There is some uncertainty through this period but the most likely scenario is for mainly dry weather with sunny spells to persist in the south and east, whilst more changeable weather is expected in the north and west with showers or longer spells of rain, interspersed by some drier and brighter conditions. By the end of May and through early June, there are weak signals that the mainly dry and settled weather in the south will spread northwards into other parts of the country. Temperatures are likely to be near normal, though perhaps becoming warm later towards the southeast.-
