10 Day Forecast for Edale

Page loading ...

Largely fine, but increasingly breezy.

Today:

After a fine though chilly morning, cloud will gradually thicken through the afternoon. Most places will stay dry, although the odd spot of rain is possible across the Dales. Turning breezy later. Maximum Temperature 15C.

Tonight:

Generally cloudy and breezy with outbreaks of rain to the north of the region but some clear spells at times to the south. Not as cold as previous nights. Minimum Temperature 5C.

Wednesday:

Breezy and cloudy with outbreaks of rain across western parts but some occasional sunny spells to the east. Wind and rain easing during the evening. Maximum Temperature 18C.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Dry with long sunny spells Thursday, some light rain in the evening. Mostly dry and sunny Friday, perhaps the odd shower. Dry with hazy sunshine Saturday.

Day 6 to 15

This weekend there'll be a good deal of fine weather, with the best of the sunshine across the south and west. However, northwestern areas will probably become cloudier with some rain through Saturday, with this patchy rain sinking slowly south and east but tending to die away as it does so. On Sunday northern and eastern parts will see some blustery showers, and it will become very windy in the far north with gales. Through the first week of October, many areas are likely to remain mostly settled, with some cold nights at first and perhaps some early morning fog, but still with some warm sunshine by day. Southern parts are likely to see the driest weather, but some wet and windy weather is possible at times in the north.

Day 16 to 30

Generally settled and drier conditions are likely to dominate across many parts of the UK during the beginning of this period, particularly across the south. This should bring a good deal of sunshine, with any wet and windy weather likely to be mostly confined to the north. Longer nights will lead to a greater chance of fog and patchy frost, but the days will often be mild. Towards the middle of the month, there is considerable uncertainty in the forecast, with the chance that it may turn more unsettled across all parts, although this is most likely to be across the north. Temperatures are likely to be near normal to locally warm at times, but overall colder than normal.
