Weather forecast as Chesterfield set for more unsettled conditions and heavy rain
Chesterfield was hit with a deluge of heavy rain on Monday morning – and it looks like more wet weather could be on the way throughout the week.
The Met Office has warned of a change to more unsettled weather this week, with a chance of further showers across parts of Derbyshire on Monday evening.
Temperatures will dip slightly on Tuesday, reaching highs of just 16°C, and showers or longer spells of rain are expected by the afternoon.
Further rain showers will then clear to the east for the remainder of the week bringing the odd bright spell.
"A breezy day and continuing to feel much cooler compared to recent days,” the Met Office forecast for Tuesday reads.
It adds: “Windy and bright on Wednesday with early rain clearing east. Further rain and showers spreading eastwards Thursday and Friday with some brightness at times.
"Temperatures near or slightly below average.”
A low pressure system to the north of the UK will then dominate the weather from Friday, particularly in northwestern areas.
Forecasters predict this will bring “organised bands of rain, heavy at times, interspersed with cooler and showery periods but some sunny spells too.”
They said: “Drier and more settled conditions are likely across southern and eastern parts of the country, but there is still a chance that bands of rain and strong winds from the north and west could extend into these areas.
"The temperatures are most likely to be slightly below average for this time of the year during the start of the period, but will gradually return to near average later.”
