10 Day Forecast for Edale

Page loading ...

Dry, but increasingly cloudy, some mist and fog.

This Evening and Tonight:

Remaining dry this evening and overnight, but becoming increasingly cloudy. Winds will fall light and variable overnight allowing it to become rather chilly in rural spots and some patches of mist and fog are possible. Minimum Temperature 5C.

Friday:

Friday will be dry but largely cloudy with fog on hills. Cloud may lift and break for a time to allow some limited sunny spells. Mild with winds remaining light. Maximum Temperature 13C.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Dry and generally brighter over the weekend, but turning colder with brisk easterly winds at times. Becoming cloudier on Monday with the chance of a few showers.

Day 6 to 15

For much of next week it looks mostly cloudy with the best of the brighter spells in the west. Showers are possible, mainly in the east, and these could turn wintry over hills. It will be cold, especially in the south, with this accentuated by the brisk wind. Night frosts are likely and could become widespread at times. Towards the end of the week there is a chance of outbreaks of rain and hill snow affecting many areas at times, particularly in the south. Similar conditions will probably continue into the following weekend and the last week of November. There is also an increasing chance of snow falling to lower levels towards the end of November, mainly in the north and east.

Day 16 to 30

This period is likely to begin with a continuation of cold conditions. The best of any sunshine is likely in the west with generally cloudier skies in the east. There is a continued chance of showers for all areas with snow over the hills, mainly in the east and north. More organised areas of rain and hill snow could affect many areas at times, and there is a low risk of snow to low levels. Confidence is currently low towards the middle of December. However, there is an increased chance of less cold conditions arriving as weather systems moving in from the Atlantic.
