/ Peak Eastern Edges Conditions
Stuff in the sun and wind was dry today at Burbage N, but the back of cracks a bit greasy. I'd guess Stanage and Curbar will be similar.
It would have been ok today, dried by a strong and (relatively) mild wind. Groundwater is high, anything that can seep will be wet.
No rain predicted overnight, but with light rain or drizzle predicted for most of tomorrow I wouldn't make a long trip for it unless you are very optimistic.
Birchen was dry today, if not a bit soggy underfoot, with the odd line affected by seepage. Worth a risk i say!
More snow forecast tonight, slightly warmer tomorrow, then rain sweeping in late on Saturday. You might find stuff to do tomorrow, but I doubt it - they'll be a lot of melting snow. Theres probably been a foot or so of snow around Burbage and Stanage (was cycling up there on Weds).
Also worth remembering that after a prolonged cold spell warmer weather will cause condensation on all chilled surfaces so everything will be wet for a couple of days.
