  • UK 5 days
  • UK 6-30 days

Regional forecast for South West England

Dry and bright today. Much fresher than recent days.

Today:

Still some mist and low cloud affecting the south coast first thing, but elsewhere, a brighter, fresher start than of late. Then a dry and fine day with lengthy sunny spells for most. Feeling much less humid than recent days. Maximum Temperature 20C.

Tonight:

Dry with clear skies overnight and just a very light breeze. Much cooler than recent nights, turning quite chilly in the countryside. Minimum Temperature 7C.

Monday:

Another dry and bright day with sunny spells and light winds. Just a little patchy cloud at times. Maximum Temperature 19C.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Remaining fine on Tuesday with further sunshine. Perhaps some thicker cloud and a few spots of rain overnight. Brighter on Wednesday, possibly the odd shower. Cloudier on Thursday.

Issued at: 0500 on Sun 21 Sep 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

A chilly start, then a fine and dry day.

Today:

A chilly start, especially in the north. Then a fine, fresh day with sunny intervals. Dry for the bulk of the UK, just the chance of the odd light shower for some eastern counties, and breezy for North Sea coasts.

Tonight:

A fine end to the day for most, and clear spells overnight, so turning chilly more widely tonight, with grass frost likely in some rural areas.

Monday:

Another dry and bright day for most with sunny spells and light winds. Clouding over in the far northwest with some rain for northwest Scotland into the afternoon.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Turning more unsettled from the northwest, though rain becoming increasingly light and patchy as it spreads southeastwards. Brighter with showers Wednesday. Cloudy, breezy and damp on Thursday.

Issued at: 0500 on Sun 21 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.
