A Full "Snow Moon" (The Snow Moon is the Full Moon in February, named after the snow on the ground. Some North American tribes named it the Hunger Moon due to the scarce food sources and hard hunting conditions during mid-winter, while others named it the Storm Moon!) will light up the night sky on Tuesday February 19th, as the moon makes it closest approach to Earth in the lunar cycle. The spectacle comes just weeks after a rare super blood moon lit up the skies. During a supermoon, the moon appears slightly bigger than usual because it’s at its closest approach with our planet. The phenomenon will be visible in the UK at 3.53pm - the moon will look larger and brighter than usual. - and you (depending on cloud cover!) will be able to see it all with with the naked eye.

Please bear in mind, that users of this site, especially in adverse weather conditions, have reached biblical proportions! - something in the region of 15,000 visitors an hour at peak times - as a result, when the site is very busy, there may be a delay in loading. To help with fast loading for everyone - even those on slower Internet connections, a number of changes are taking place - you may have noticed that all the pictures have changed to "Thumbnails" - this decreases data download - and has the added bonus of my being able to show a much better quality image, than previously, when you click on a thumbnail.  Also, at times of very high demand, you may find that the images and graphs of various weather parameters are missing from the table below  - that will be temporary - all the images and graphs will reappear, as soon as site demand drops.  I am doing all this to make sure you can continue to have the best possible access, to buxtonweather.co.uk

-UK, Met Office - Longer Range Forecast, for the entire UK   Met Office.:
----UK Outlook for Friday 22 Feb 2019 to Sunday 3 Mar 2019:
Friday is likely to be mild but breezy across the UK with many places dry and sunny. The southeast may see some early mist and fog, but also the best of the sunshine and very mild in places. The far northwest could see some rain and stronger winds; generally cloudier, more changeable here. This northwest-southeast split in conditions is likely to be maintained through the weekend and into next week. Any spells of rain from the northwest will tend to weaken as it moves southeast, bringing cloudier spells. Dry, settled conditions are likely to dominate through the end of February away from the far northwest; overnight frosts are possible. By early March we are more likely to see Atlantic fronts crossing the UK bringing stronger winds and rain at times.
UK Outlook for Monday 4 Mar 2019 to Monday 18 Mar 2019:
By early March there are signals for Atlantic fronts crossing the UK, bringing a mixture of wet and windy weather to many parts, but also intermittent drier spells. Snow remains possible over higher ground in the north. There are weaker signals for snow to lower levels elsewhere should a cold easterly develop; this remains a small possibility. However, milder conditions remain more likely, although occasional overnight frosts remain possible.----------------------
