Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 14 Feb 2016 to Tuesday 23 Feb 2016:

Unsettled and rather cold conditions are likely to continue at first. Cold, showery conditions across the northeast at first may give spells of snow, with overnight frosts likely. Further southwest more prolonged spells of rain are likely, with a risk of this turning wintry, most likely over high ground. It will be windy at times, with a possibility of gales, most likely in the northeast and far southwest. It may turn drier from the west at the start of next week, although remaining cold with overnight frosts. Through the week, unsettled conditions should gradually return, with northwestern areas seeing the wettest, windiest weather, and southeastern areas likely to see more in the way of dry weather. Temperatures returning to near normal, although with overnight frosts still possible.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 24 Feb 2016 to Wednesday 9 Mar 2016:

Indications are that the latter half of February will be dominated by changeable weather coming in from the Atlantic. This will bring showers or longer spells of rain to most parts, wettest in northern areas, while southern parts may benefit from some longer dry spells. Snow is likely at times, mainly over northern hills. Temperatures should generally be near normal for the time of year, with the chance of occasional frosty nights where skies become clear. Generally windy with gales or even severe gales at times, mainly in northern and western parts. Into early March there is a possibility of more settled weather becoming established, mainly across southern areas, bringing drier and less windy conditions here, however, wet and windy weather will more likely persist in the north and west.

Snowdon Summit information

Cambridge is a city that is renowned for its world famous university. The University of Cambridge, founded in 1209, is famed for not only being the second oldest university in England but also for having more Nobel Prize winners amongst it's alumni than any other university in history. To date, 61 former graduates have won the Nobel Prize, along with eight Fields Medals and two Abel Prizes.

But the city is about more than just education. Cambridge dates back to before the Roman Empire, where there is evidence of a settlement in the area from a 3,500 year old farmstead found in the ground of Fitzwilliam College. The current population of the city is around 130,000, with roughly 22,000 students.

In Cambridge, minimum average daytime temperatures range from 1.9 °C to 1.3 °C during the winter months. This is slightly above the UK average. February is the coldest month and usually has more air frost days than any other - although December is a close second. It's also the driest individual month of the year. Rainfall accumulation in Cambridge is at its second lowest during winter. Despite this, January has the most days of rainfall greater than 1 mm.

Average maximum daytime temperatures in Cambridge can increase from 10.6 °C in March to approaching 17 °C by May. These values are around 2 degrees above the UK average. Days of air frost halve from March to April and around four days every ten years of air frost in May. Spring is the driest time in Cambridge, with rainfall accumulation significantly below the UK average.

The hottest month of the year in Cambridge is July, when temperatures typically reach 23 °C. Rainfall is higher than spring, although still less than both autumn and the UK average for summer. Over the course of summer, the most rainfall usually occurs in June when rainfall accumulation is around 56 mm.

Cambridge is one of the driest locations in the United Kingdom. Autumn sees the most rain but it's still notably lower than many other places. For October, the wettest month, rainfall accumulation is 59 mm. The UK average for October is double this figure. Temperatures generally decrease from highs of 19 °C in September to maxima of 10 °C by November. On average there is at least 1 day every year of air frost in October, but this more than quadruples in November.

Climate data based on Cambridge Niab, 1981 - 2010.
