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

-Sunday Evening and Night:
Although the early evening showers, forecast, actually slid away, 40 miles to the South, cloud will thicken generally overnight, with periods of rain, perhaps heavy at times - again spreading from the south. It will become misty at times over higher ground. After midnight the rain will become light and intermittent. Minimum Temperature 8 C.
After a cloudy and misty start with possible early rain, brighter spells will develop. Some showers likely later in the early evening Maximum Temperature 16 C.
Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:
Bright or sunny intervals and scattered showers on Tuesday, some of which may be heavy. More general rain will spread from the southwest later on Wednesday, followed by showers into Thursday with some brightness.
UK Outlook for Friday 25 Apr 2014 to Sunday 4 May 2014:
An unsettled end to next week with showers or longer spells of rain, heavy at times, although there will be some drier, brighter spells too, most likely in the northwest of the UK. Generally windy with a risk of gales in the southwest. Chilly in the rain and along windward coasts, however it will feel warm where it remains bright. The end of April is likely to remain changeable, especially for southern parts. Brighter periods too, these most lengthy in the north or northwest where it should be driest. Rather warm in brighter spells, though an easterly breeze will tend to keep northern and eastern areas cooler. This pattern of weather is expected to continue into May, but temperatures may decrease with some colder nights possible.
UK Outlook for Monday 5 May 2014 to Monday 19 May 2014:
There remain no strong, discernable signals for any particular weather type to dominate through the first half of May. This leaves conditions more likely than not to be mixed with unsettled spells and 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, though at this time of year this would still leave conditions feeling pleasant in sunshine when winds are light. Southern regions probably have the best chance of above average maxima, whilst some north-western parts may be slightly below average at times. Nights, meanwhile, may be chilly with a touch of frost possible.-
