-ROAD and TRAFFIC - ..More roadworks in Dove Holes! - the A6 at Hallsteads, will be closing in various stages, from 18.30 to 23.30 each night from Wednesday 17th October to Wednesday 31st October..... 
AND  .... There are long delays through daytime again, at the top of Barmour Clough, just north of Dove Holes - at the junction of the A6 & the A623 to Sparrowpit - there are temporary traffic lights - they will be there to October 26th.
AND ... The A619 Thirteen bends road, which runs between Bakewell/Ashford in the Water and Baslow/Chatsworth will be closed from the Pilsley junction, down to road from Chatsworth, for four weeks, from Monday the 24th of September until Sunday the 21st of October, to
allow Derbyshire County Council to carry out essential work to protect the carriageway from undercutting by the Rymas Brook, which runs alongside this road.  The river has begun to migrate towards the road and threaten its integrity, so number of new retaining structures will be built to safeguard this road.  Because of the nature of the work it will not be possible to open the road at night - due to the depth of the excavations to be undertaken - however a diversion route will be in place....
AND   ...An amazing drone video, of the works being carried out right now on the A54 Road .........road!!  CLICK HERE   ....Roadworks started on 30th July on the A54 Congleton Road - this is to replace barriers on the south side of the road near Wildboarclough.  The road will be closed
for some 16 weeks, until around November 4th, from the junction with the A537 Cat & Fiddle Road, to Bosley Crossroads.

We have weather set fair (but a little cool at times) for a few days right now - Lovely, summer like days that occur around October 18 are called "Saint Luke’s Little Summer" - in honour of the saint’s feast day. Around this time, Saint Luke’s feast day, there is often a period brief period of calm, dry weather. Of course, it’s difficult to generalize, but the temperature is usually fairly mild and the leaf colors are turning a gorgeous color. In Venice, Italy, they say: “San Luca, El ton va te la zuca” (Pumpkins go stale on St Luke’s Day), but here, pumpkins are enjoying their finest hour! Saint Luke is the patron saint of physicians and surgeons so it seems only fitting that the good doctor give us these calm days. In olden days, St. Luke’s Day did not receive as much attention in the secular world as St. John’s Day (June 24) and Michaelmas (September 29), so it was to keep from being forgotten that St. Luke presented us with some golden days to cherish before the coming of winter, or so the story goes. Some folks call this Indian Summer, but that officially occurs between November 11 and November 20 - Thank you Andrew Kaye of Wickers World and Peter Wildgoose of Newton Grange Farm for this - a lovely tale!

-UK, Met Office - Longer Range Forecast, for the entire UK   Met Office.:
-UK Outlook for Tuesday 23 Oct 2018 to Thursday 1 Nov 2018:
The start of the period will be mainly dry across most areas, although it could be rather cloudy. The best of the sunshine is likely in the southwest. However, the far north will be cloudy with outbreaks of rain, turning heavy at times in the northwest. It will also be windy across the north with gales possible in the far north of Scotland. Thereafter, it is likely to stay generally changeable across northern areas through this period with spells of wet and windy weather interspersed with brighter and showery spells. Drier and brighter conditions are likely in the south, particularly in central and southwestern areas of England and Wales. Temperatures are expected to vary around average by day, but some frost and perhaps some patchy fog is possible overnight.
UK Outlook for Friday 2 Nov 2018 to Friday 16 Nov 2018:
More widely unsettled conditions could develop during the beginning of November, bringing spells of wet and windy weather. There are signs that high pressure may build across northern areas towards the end of this period, bringing a greater likelihood of drier weather here and also overnight frost and fog. Changeable conditions are more likely to continue across the south and west. On the whole temperatures are likely to be below normal, but some short lived milder spells are likely in periods of wet weather.-
