UK forecast for the next 5 days

Issued at: 1700 on Fri 24 Oct 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 29 Oct 2014 to Friday 7 Nov 2014:

A slow moving band of rain over the central parts on Wednesday is expected to slowly weaken. To the north, largely fine with sunny spells after a chilly start. Dull, damp and mild to the south with occasional drizzle. Brighter across southern parts on Thursday with sunny spells. However, rain and strong winds are likely to extend into northwestern areas, before reaching central parts by the end of the day. A north-south split looks most likely to predominate thereafter with the most frequent bouts of wind and rain likely in the north and northwest, with the best of the drier weather in the south and southeast; although there is likely to be some rain here at times. Temperatures generally near normal, although feeling cold in strong winds and rain.

UK Outlook for Saturday 8 Nov 2014 to Saturday 22 Nov 2014:

The main signal is for a continuation of a north-south split during the second week of November. During this period, the generally westerly flow is likely to bring spells of wet and windy weather, mostly affecting northern and some western areas, but perhaps reaching other areas as well, this interspersed with drier intervals. However, southern and some eastern areas will probably see more in the way of drier and settled conditions increasing the likelihood of some sunshine, but also the risk of frost, mist and fog overnight, the latter of which could be slow to clear. After this it looks like unsettled weather will spread to much of the UK. Daytime temperatures will probably 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.
