Make the most of what should be a mild and sunny week because there’s a brutal taste of autumn on its way, just in time for the weekend.
The working week looks set to be topped off with a washout on Saturday, as rain is forecast for most of the day, and Sunday could be cold, blustery and showery.
The lead up to the weekend will offer some pleasant sunny spells for Derbyshire, with little in the way of rain, but some cold nights following otherwise warm days.
Tomorrow will be largely cloudy but warm, very warm in any sunshine, and Thursday could see some light showers arrive in the county, but generally not a bad day.
Friday should be a fine day for Derbyshire with plenty of strong sunshine, potentially feeling very warm.
But by Saturday it’s all set to turn sour, as a band of rain looks set to arrive from the west, delivering persistent, moderate rain for most of the day.
Temperatures will feel cooler on Saturday, but Sunday might be the day we reach for our big coats as it currently looks to be a day of blustery showers, significantly cooler too, in the mid-teens.
Looking ahead to next week, the long-range forecasts are struggling to pin down any detail, but the consensus is for the unsettled spell to continue.
