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

-Weather forecast for Buxton and the Peak District:
-Thursday Evening and Tonight:
A dry night - and under the largely clear skies, with light winds, some patchy mist and fog may form, and it will become chilly. Minimum Temperature 5C.
Patchy mist and fog will clear locally slowly, leaving a fine morning with sunny periods. Some cloud may develop through the afternoon, with just an outside chance of an isolated light shower. Maximum Temperature 15C.
Outlook for Saturday to Monday:
Plenty of dry weather to come, though the odd light shower is just about possible, especially on Saturday. A noticeable easterly breeze developing will make it feel cool.-
-UK, longer term, general, outlook:
UK Outlook for Tuesday 13 Oct 2015 to Thursday 22 Oct 2015:
Settled conditions are expected to largely dominate at first, with the best of any sunshine across the northwest of the UK. The odd shower is possible though, mainly across eastern parts. Temperatures are likely to continue to be below average, especially in the south, where a brisk easterly wind is expected. During Wednesday cloud amounts are expected to increase across northwestern parts with rain perhaps developing later, before spreading southeast. Settled conditions are then expected to return into the weekend with temperatures recovering to nearer normal. From the weekend onwards confidence reduces with a probable trend for a more mobile pattern developing across the UK, from the north, with west or southwesterly winds bringing outbreaks of rain at times. Temperatures generally near normal.
UK Outlook for Friday 23 Oct 2015 to Friday 6 Nov 2015:
Things look very uncertain for the remainder of October and into early November, although currently the most probable trend is towards a unsettled, mobile pattern affecting the UK. West and northwestern areas are expected to be most at risk of seeing the wettest and most unsettled conditions, with the best of any drier weather in eastern parts.-
