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 ...

Dry, cold and largely sunny today.

Today:

Today will be cold, despite increasing amounts of sunshine as initial patchy cloud gradually disperses. The brisk southeasterly wind, becoming locally strong along the coast, will produce a noticeable windchill everywhere. Maximum Temperature 5C.

Tonight:

Areas of cloud are likely to arrive, but still a widespread frost will occur. Only coastal locations will escape a frost, as a strong wind persists here. Minimum Temperature -2C.

Sunday:

Patchy cloud, bringing a chance of a few snow flurries later, but also sunny spells. It will feel bitterly cold, despite the wind easing a little. Maximum Temperature 3C.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Extremely cold with snow showers, these becoming frequent and sometimes heavy through Monday, with no change Tuesday and Wednesday, leading to locally significant accumulations. Becoming windy from Tuesday.

Day 6 to 15

It will stay very cold as we head into March, with sunshine and snow showers. Showers are most likely across eastern and central parts of the UK where accumulations may mount up. Further west, large accumulations are still possible but much less likely. Winds will be light to moderate for most, but across southern Britain strong easterly winds, possibly gales around the coast, will make it feel bitterly cold. Night time frosts will be widespread and severe in places too. There is currently a possibility of more unsettled weather trying to push in from the southwest at times towards the first weekend in March and beyond. This could bring more significant snow and gales to southern parts of the UK but there is currently a lot of uncertainty with this.

Day 16 to 30

At the start of this period it will probably still be cold across the UK, with widespread frost and brisk easterly winds from Continental Europe, making it feel raw. This will continue to bring the risk of significant snow across some southern, eastern and central parts of the UK, whereas in the north and west it should be drier. As we head through the middle of March, there is a lot of uncertainty in the forecast, but it may start to turn more generally unsettled and less cold with wetter and milder weather spreading in from the southwest. In contrast, northern and eastern areas could remain cold well into March.
