A number of you weather watchers have noticed, that even after the wonderful summer we have had - since that ended, we have had quite modest amounts of rain - and much of that which has fallen has been in a short heavy bursts - not too good perhaps for reservoirs.  Even though Severn Trent Water are showing some 64% capacity in their area, if you have been to near Peak District reservoirs, you will have seen they all seem low!  The Ladybower complex (Where our water in the Buxton area comes from ) has not recovered from the Summer - in fact it LOOKS lower than in August! - yesterday I ran a photo showing the revealed foundations of the hall - MORE amazing photographs here - this time from an intrepid Mick Hellewell - he says "I've watched the water levels drop week by week
, bit by bit, exposing this "lovers seat" that was tucked away at the end of Derwent Hall.  It became my aspiration to actually sit on it before the reservoir fills up again and it disappears below the water. Given it was 1996 when it last saw daylight, who knows the next time it will emerge! (First image shows Derwent Hall before it was demolished - the "lovers seat" is on the extreme left of the image, half way up - Second image is now!) Thank you Mick Hellewell!

-UK Outlook for Tuesday 20 Nov 2018 to Thursday 29 Nov 2018:
For much of next week it looks mostly cloudy with the best of the brighter spells in the west. Showers are possible, mainly in the east, and these could turn wintry over hills. It will be cold, especially in the south, with this accentuated by the brisk wind. Night frosts are likely and could become widespread at times. Towards the end of the week there is a chance of outbreaks of rain and hill snow affecting many areas at times, particularly in the south. Similar conditions will probably continue into the following weekend and the last week of November. There is also an increasing chance of snow falling to lower levels towards the end of November, mainly in the north and east.
UK Outlook for Friday 30 Nov 2018 to Friday 14 Dec 2018:
This period is likely to begin with a continuation of cold conditions. The best of any sunshine is likely in the west with generally cloudier skies in the east. There is a continued chance of showers for all areas with snow over the hills, mainly in the east and north. More organised areas of rain and hill snow could affect many areas at times, and there is a low risk of snow to low levels. Confidence is currently low towards the middle of December. However, there is an increased chance of less cold conditions arriving as weather systems moving in from the Atlantic.-
