Snow is forecast to fall in Derbyshire.

“Strong southeasterly winds will also lead to snow drifting in places, particularly over the highest routes, adding to poor visibilities.”

According to the Met Office, snow, heavy at times, could fall in parts of the Peak District throughout Monday. People are advised to check the weather forecast before they travel.
