UK forecast for the next 5 days

Turning brighter with murky conditions becoming confined to the southeast.

Today:

Dull start for England and Wales with occasional rain and drizzle. Brighter conditions spreading from the northwest, though some southeastern parts remaining murky with perhaps the odd sharp shower. Turning breezier in the far northwest with a few showers.

Tonight:

Chance of further drizzle, low cloud and increasing amounts of hill fog in southeastern areas, otherwise fine with fog patches in prone rural spots. Chilly in the north and west.

Tuesday:

Largely dry and warm with some sunshine once any overnight mist and fog patches clear. Probably cloudy for some southeastern parts, with the odd shower possible.

Remaining generally fine but with large amounts of cloud at times. Occasional bright or sunny spells making it feel locally very warm, but also some patchy light rain or drizzle.

Issued at: 0500 on Mon 01 Sep 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 6 Sep 2014 to Monday 15 Sep 2014:

Many places dry through the weekend, with variable, but often large amounts of cloud and some bright or sunny spells, but there is an increasing risk of rain or showers spreading across southern and southwestern areas, possibly extending to central areas by the end of Sunday. Into next week, still a good deal of dry weather, especially towards the north, but probably becoming more unsettled from the southwest, with heavy rain possible at times. Light winds at first but becoming breezy from the southwest. Temperatures generally near or a little above average. Into the latter part of next week and beyond, the most likely scenario is for the unsettled conditions to migrate towards the northwest of the UK, with the best of the drier and warmer conditions towards the southeast.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 16 Sep 2014 to Tuesday 30 Sep 2014:

During mid to late September most regions can expect to see periods of fine weather, with some warm sunshine at times. However, these fine periods may well be interspersed with occasional spells of cloudier, more unsettled conditions bringing showers or longer spells of rain. Northern and western parts are probably most likely to see the more frequent bouts of unsettled weather, whilst southern and eastern parts should see the better fine and dry spells. Daytime temperatures are likely to be above average during fine weather leaving conditions feeling pleasantly warm. Nights, however, may well be on the chilly side. During any unsettled weather daytime temperatures are more likely to be near or below average leaving conditions feeling cool.

Bristol information

Found on the river Avon in the south-west of England and bordering Wales, Bristol is England’s sixth largest city with a population of around 430,000.

Bristol’s proximity to the sea is what first established the city as a major dwelling in Britain. During the Middle Ages, Bristol boomed to become one of the major ports in the country when sales of imported goods brought prosperity to the region - to such an extent that Edward III proclaimed it to be a county in itself. At one point, Bristol had a strong case for calling itself England’s Second City until the Industrial Revolution brought more status to cities further north.

Bristol’s postcode area occupies great swathes of the coastline of south-west England, from Weston-super-Mare at the boundary’s edge, further south inland to Wedmore, then north-east to Yate and Chipping Sodbury.

Bristol holds one of the biggest outdoor attractions in the UK; each summer the International Balloon Fiesta draws half a million visitors to Ashton Court as a twice-daily display launches hundreds of hot air balloons into the sky including the weird and wonderful shapes of the Special Shapes Ascent. The Fiesta also plays host to a fairground, many arts and crafts stalls as well as live music acts.

Another popular facet of Bristolian life is the support of its two football clubs; Bristol City and Bristol Rovers currently have fans flocking to their games at Ashton Gate and the Memorial Stadium respectively and whenever the two teams meet, it is considered an intense local derby. The Memorial Stadium is also home to Bristol Rugby, the city’s rugby union club.

Bristol is also considered to be something of a cultural hotbed, attracting visitors as well as artists from across the country and overseas. From the Theatre Royal — which serves as the home of the Bristol Old Vic theatre company — to its thriving underground music scene which uncovered ‘trip-hop- acts like Massive Attack and Portishead, the Bristol scene has for many years been at the heart of British culture. Bristol is also the home of Banksy, the mysterious graffiti artist whose anonymity remains to this day — as well as a great many of his contemporaries in the medium. The Bristol Museum and Art Gallery has also been a major attraction to visitors from all over the world.
