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

Mainly dry through the morning with any mist quickly clearing. Sunny spells through this afternoon but also the chance of isolated showers - some of which which could be heavy. Winds will remain light. Maximum Temperature 14 C.
Thursday Night:
Any showers will die away. Mist and low cloud will edge in from the east on a gentle breeze, followed late in the night by some patchy rain. Minimum Temperature 8 C.
Extensive cloud is likely to persist through Friday, with a few showers around - more extensive outbreaks of rain which could be heavy and persistent, will arrive in the evening. Winds will remain light but it will feel cool. Maximum Temperature 13 C.
Outlook for Saturday to Monday:
Saturday likely to be mostly cloudy with rain or showers at times and some brightness. Sunday and Monday more likely to see some dry weather but still with the risk of some showers.
UK Outlook for Monday 28 Apr 2014 to Wednesday 7 May 2014:
Most places will remain unsettled with showers or longer spells of rain, heavy at times, although there will be some drier, brighter spells too. It will be breezy at times, particularly in the north. Feeling quite warm at first where it remains bright, but chilly in the rain and in the northeast and it will gradually turn colder from the north with showers in the north turning wintry over high ground. Similar, changeable conditions look likely to persist for the remainder of the week with a continuing downward trend in temperatures, making it feel chilly with an increased risk of frost. Into the following week, perhaps after a drier interlude, the unsettled theme is expected to continue, but with signs that temperatures could recover, perhaps rising above normal.
UK Outlook for Thursday 8 May 2014 to Thursday 22 May 2014:
There remain no strong, discernable signals for any particular weather type to dominate through this period, although western parts look likely to remain most settled. Elsewhere, conditions are more likely than not to be mixed, with showers or longer outbreaks of rain, interspersed with periods of largely fine and dry weather. By day, temperatures are likely to often be near average, which at this time of year would leave conditions feeling pleasant in sunshine when winds are light. Southern regions probably have the best chance of above average maxima. Where more settled conditions persist, nights may still be chilly with a touch of frost possible.-
