Regional forecast for South West England

A chilly start, then another dry and fine day.

A chilly start this morning, with a few localised mist and fog patches. Then a fine and dry day with patchy cloud and sunny spells. Feeling pleasant in the sunshine with just a light breeze. Maximum Temperature 20C.

Tonight:

Dry with clear spells and light winds overnight, so another chilly one. Once again, a few rural mist and fog patches may develop. Minimum Temperature 5C.

Issued at: 0500 on Mon 22 Sep 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Dry and fine for most, but rain in far northwest.

Today:

A cold start this morning, with a few localised mist and fog patches, then dry and fine for most once again. However rain will edge across northwest Scotland, then into Northern Ireland and the rest of Scotland into the evening.

Tonight:

The cloud and rain will continue to push southeastwards overnight, possibly just about reaching northern parts of northern England by dawn. Elsewhere, dry, clear and cold once again.

Tuesday:

The band of cloud and occasional rain will continue southwards, across the rest of northern England and north Wales by evening. Largely dry and fine either side.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Cloud and rain clearing southwards on Wednesday with the odd shower following. Largely cloudy on Thursday and Friday with outbreaks of rain or drizzle for many. Breezy throughout, especially Thursday.

Issued at: 0500 on Mon 22 Sep 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 26 Sep 2014 to Sunday 5 Oct 2014:

Fairly cloudy at first, though some sunny intervals developing for central, southern and eastern parts of the UK. Outbreaks of rain are expected for northern and western areas, more persistent for parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland, although clearer, showery weather should follow for a time. It will be quite windy here too. Temperatures generally near or a little above normal. Into the following week, the north and west are likely to remain the windiest and most unsettled parts of the UK, with the best of the weather further south and east. However, a little rain is to be expected here at times. Temperatures should be a little above normal for most. This general northwest-southwest split in the weather is then likely to continue into the start of October.

UK Outlook for Monday 6 Oct 2014 to Monday 20 Oct 2014:

The broadly northwest-southeast split in weather conditions expected to become established for late September and early October is then showing signs of persisting into mid-October. This pattern would leave southern, central and eastern parts tending to see the best of the weather with conditions often fine and dry. Occasional bouts of rain should still be expected, and mist and fog patches may be a problem during morning rush hours but under fine weather it should feel pleasant. Further northwest, conditions are likely to be more unsettled with more frequent outbreaks of rain, perhaps accompanied by strong winds, temperatures here then often closer to average or perhaps even just below at times.

Plymouth information

The city of Plymouth is one that has certainly earned its place in history and its role in the development of the modern Western world is not to be underestimated.

Plymouth has always been a hub of seafaring activity, from the days of the Roman Empire and its role as a trading post to the contemporary city, home to the biggest operational navy base in Western Europe. Plymouth was also the starting point for a ship bound for the New World in 1620 containing a number of people who would later be known as the Pilgrim Fathers. They settled in what is now known as America and their voyage is commemorated with the Mayflower Steps in Plymouth.

Plymouth suffered from widespread destruction during the Second World War, with the entire city centre being rebuilt in the post-war years. This suffering during the war, along with Plymouth’s key role in previous naval attacks, means that the city has around twenty war memorials remembering those who had passed away during the battles and significant victories of the town.

Thanks to the long history of the city, the city is home to a number of historic landmarks, such as the Royal Citadel (built in 1666). This includes the original, earliest port of Plymouth, then called Sutton, which has an astonishing 100 listed buildings. For modern tastes, the National Marine Aquarium and Plymouth Hoe are excellent places to visit and even those are imbued with a sense of history - it’s thought that Plymouth Hoe is where Sir Francis Drake played his infamous game of bowls before embarking on his voyage to defeat the Spanish Armada.

Plymouth’s role as a bustling seaport has meant that a tradition of theatre, entertainment and enjoyment has grown up around Union Street, which plays host to pubs, clubs and bars until the very early hours. Combined with the ninth largest university population in the UK, Plymouth certainly has a vibrant nightlife! Sports and arts aren’t forgotten, either, with the council-run Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery and a host of watersports such as the historic Port of Plymouth Regatta.
