Sheffield to Bamford or Moscar Lodge via Burbage Rocks and Stanage Edge walk

A walk of extreme contrasts: from Sheffield's urban centre through narrow valleys and across wild moorland to the Dark Peak's gritstone edges, and a lush finish into the Hope Valley

10 Day Forecast for Sheffield

Page loading ...

Becoming dry this evening, mostly dry with sunny spells tomorrow.

This Evening and Tonight:

Any rain or drizzle will die out through the evening to leave a dry night across the region with some clear spells developing. With winds becoming light, the odd mist or fog patch may develop by morning. Minimum Temperature 12C.

Monday:

Mostly dry with sunny spells, and just the chance of the odd light shower later. Warm inland, but cooler near the coast with onshore breezes developing. Maximum Temperature 23C.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Tuesday rather warm and humid with some sunshine and a few showers. Outbreaks of rain are likely to make erratic progress southeast Wednesday, followed by fresher, brighter conditions for Thursday.

Day 6 to 15

On Friday and Saturday many places will have sunshine and showers. These showers heavy at times and with a risk of hail and thunder, particularly in the north, with the best of the sunnier spells in the southeast. It will be windy at times, and some more persistent rain may reach northwestern parts on Saturday. Through the rest of the weekend and into the following week the northwest will have showers or longer spells of rain at times, with drier and brighter conditions generally in the southeast, although even here some bands of rain may move through. This weather pattern is quite likely to continue through the rest of the period. Temperatures starting rather cool, but recovering to around normal, and perhaps warm at times in the southeast.

Day 16 to 30

During this period it looks likely that the weather pattern will only change slowly. Areas of high pressure and associated settled weather will probably increasingly dominate, with some longer dry spells, particularly for northwestern areas compared to much of August. However there are also likely to be some more changeable weather at times in the north and northwest with outbreaks of rain and local gales, with these conditions perhaps extending southeastwards at times. Temperatures by day are likely to be generally warmer than average, especially for the southeastern half of the UK but generally nearer normal further northwest, and there will be an increasing chance of chillier nights anywhere, as would be expected during September.
