Issued at: 0500 on Wed 22 Oct 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Wet and windy in north. Drier, but increasingly cloudy elsewhere.

A dry, bright and chilly start for many southern and eastern areas, though it will turn cloudier through the day. Rain and strengthening winds will return to Northern Ireland, Scotland and northern England, turning heavy at times over western hills.

Tonight:

Generally cloudy with a few clear spells in the southeast and occasional rain in the west, persistent in some northwestern areas. A milder night, but remaining windy in the north.

Thursday:

A generally breezy and cloudy day with some brighter spells in the south and east. Sporadic outbreaks of rain, mainly in the west, persistent in the northwest. Temperatures above normal.

Issued at: 0500 on Wed 22 Oct 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 26 Oct 2014 to Tuesday 4 Nov 2014:

Showery and very windy across northern areas on Sunday and Monday, with a risk of severe gales for a time. Somewhat less windy further to the south, though with increasing amounts of cloud. Into the midweek period, a north-south split looks most probable, with windy and often unsettled conditions continuing in the north and somewhat quieter, drier weather in the south. Temperatures will generally be near normal, although feeling quite cold in the strong winds. Towards the end of October and into early November, the broad north-south split looks set to continue, with northern areas remaining changeable and at times unsettled. Further south, there are hints that pressure may start to rise, increasing the potential for more prolonged drier periods, but with a greater risk of overnight frost and fog.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 5 Nov 2014 to Wednesday 19 Nov 2014:

The main signal is for a continuation of a north-south split during the first half of November. During this period, the generally westerly flow is likely to bring spells of wet and windy weather, interspersed with drier intervals. These should mostly affect northern and some western areas, but perhaps reaching other areas as well at times. However southern and some eastern areas will probably see more in the way of the drier and settled conditions increasing the likelihood of seeing some sunshine, but also the risk of frost, mist and fog overnight, the latter of which could be slow to clear. Daytime temperatures are likely to be near or a little above normal, although feeling cooler during any wet and windy spells.

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.
