Weather for the Peak District National Park
This page provides links to the many forecast pages available on this site and a search page -
where you can search for any of 5000 UK Weather Forecasts using place names or area names.

The weather forecasts on this site are designed to be an instant visual representation of the current weather for today and the following 4 days.
The forecasts for each weather element, e.g. rain, temperature or wind gust are colour coded using dark to light shades. If any expected weather conditions are altering from normal to a more extreme state, the forecast visualisation will contain dark shades Therefore a mainly white table indicates calm average weather, while if you see darker shades, these are indicating that the weather will be hot or cold, windy, a high chance of rain or snow, high ultra violet (UV) or very humid. Basically, dark shaded cells indicate more abnormal weather conditions.
A snow cell is white on a dark grey background and thunder table cell is yellow on dark grey. For a more detailed analysis of the forecast codes go to this page Weather Codes.
The site is useful for anyone hiking, walking, hill walking, camping, participating in or organising outdoor events, mountaineering, visiting national parks or for anyone that requires a different sort of visual weather forecast, compared to the service provided by the BBC or Met Office.
The Peak District forecast at the top of the page displays forecasts for different locations and towns nestled in the National Park. These locations include the popular tourist spots of Chatsworth House, Tissington and Buxton. Also for a view of the forecast on the hills, a forecast for Kinder Scout.
One of the highest hill forecasts available in the Peak District is for Kinder Low at 632m elevation - a place where the 'Kinder Mass Trespass' occurred in 1932. As a result of this protest event, countryside, that was previously only the domain of landowners in high remote areas, was made accessible to the general public.
