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 with some sunny spells after a chilly start.

Today:

Patchy mist and fog will clear through the morning to leave a dry day with some spells of sunshine, although more cloudy at times across the Pennines. Maximum Temperature 11C.

Tonight:

Less chilly than Saturday night as more general cloud spreads from the east, the cloud perhaps thick enough to give the odd shower by Monday morning. Minimum Temperature 3C.

Monday:

Some bright or sunny intervals, but with showers becoming more frequent. Feeling colder than of late as the easterly wind strengthens. Maximum Temperature 9C.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Showers, and perhaps some longer spells of rain. Some snow on hills, and to lower levels in heavier showers, and some ice overnight. Feeling cold in the strong northeast winds.

Day 6 to 15

Throughout this period, the winds look likely to blow in from the east, across continental Europe. This will often bring cloudy skies, with the best of any sunshine in western areas. There is also the likelihood of some showers, these most frequent in eastern parts, but perhaps becoming more widespread and persistent at times. With a chill in the air, there is scope for some sleet or snow, but this will most likely be restricted to the hills. The breeze will make for a marked wind chill at times in the south. With lighter winds further north, and under clear skies at night, overnight frosts are likely to become more common. There is also a small chance of even colder conditions going into early December, in northerly winds.

Day 16 to 30

Through this period, there may be a continuation of the cold and mainly settled conditions for much of the UK, with some showers coming in from the east. However, there is a chance that during early December the weather pattern may change, with fronts moving in from the west across the Atlantic. This would bring longer spells of rain, interspersed with brighter, showery interludes, and it would also become less cold. However, even if the change does happen, it won't be long before we have more settled conditions again, perhaps by the middle of December. This would mean a return to the colder conditions with overnight frost and fog.
