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

-No more snow fell through Sunday - we have had 28 cm (11") of snow on the ground over the past few days (measured at this location) and much of it still there! -  the snowfall over the last few days, means that although many main roads are now clear and open, side roads in the area are still severely snow affected-
From Derbyshire County Council - Sunday: "19.00 update: The Primary routes were treated from 3pm this afternoon followed by a Secondary route treatment around 6pm. The Primary routes will be treated again at 4am on Monday morning. The farmers helped to clear snow in the northwest of the county."

Sunday Evening and Night:
A mainly dry, clear night with temperatures dropping quickly inland to give a widespread sharp frost, particularly over snowfields, and some icy patches. Minimum Temperature -5C.
A dry day with sunshine at times. Generally lighter winds but bitterly cold, with a widespread sharp frost early and later. Maximum Temperature -2 C.
Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:
Remaining cold with widespread frosts and ice. Severe night-time frosts. Further snow showers likely, particularly later on Tuesday and at times on Wednesday. Some accumulations possible. Drier on Thursday.
UK Outlook for Friday 6 Feb 2015 to Sunday 15 Feb 2015:
The cold weather will continue through Friday and Saturday, particularly in the south. There is likely to be some snow showers in the southeast at first, with widespread overnight frosts. There is a risk of more widespread rain and snow over north-western parts from Saturday as conditions are likely to become more influenced by the Atlantic. Temperatures gradually becoming less cold here, although the transition period will have the potential for further snow in places. Elsewhere, conditions will be mainly dry with some sunshine. Through the second week of February, temperatures will remain near or just below average and it will be often dry, particularly in the south. However, it will be generally more unsettled in the northwest and less cold, under the influence of Atlantic air.
UK Outlook for Monday 16 Feb 2015 to Monday 2 Mar 2015:
Whilst changeable Atlantic conditions will likely prevail at the start of the period, mainly in the north, it currently looks most probable that a period of more settled weather will dominate in the south. This leaves most parts of the UK with slightly drier, and colder conditions than average with overnight frosts and patchy fog likely at times-
