After a chilly night in the Peak District, low cloud blankets the Derbyshire countryside as the sun rises over Curbar Edge as this week's warm weather began. This type of weather phenomenon is known as an inversion and can occur when, for example, a warmer, less-dense air mass moves over a cooler, denser air mass.
