Met Office forecasts snow for parts of Derbyshire amid brief cold spell
Weather experts are warning of snow for parts of Derbyshire.
Peak District locations – including Buxton, Tideswell and Taddington – could see snow, heavy at times, on Thursday afternoon, according to the latest forecast from the Met Office.
The weather agency said temperatures could fall to as low as -4C in parts of Derbyshire in the early hours of Thursday.
But this spell of wintry weather will not stay around for long.
Steve Ramsdale, Met Office chief forecaster, said: “This cold spell is temporary before we see a return to weather conditions coming from the Atlantic, bringing further bouts of strong winds and rain to the UK.”
Meanwhile, the Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for ice in Derbyshire.
This alert is valid until 10am on Wednesday.
According to the Met Office, there is a risk of injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces, and there will be some icy patches on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.
