UK Outlook for Tuesday 29 Jul 2014 to Thursday 7 Aug 2014:

The largely fine and dry weather is expected to continue across most parts of the UK initially, although in the north an area of weakening and fragmenting rain is expected to move slowly southeastwards through Tuesday.

The generally unsettled conditions look set to continue through the start of this period with more in the way of cloud and sporadic outbreaks of rain in the north, while the best of the drier, brighter spells will be in the south and east. Temperatures should remain above average for southeastern parts initially, but returning to near normal later. A return to more settled conditions in the south is looking likely towards the end of the period.

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.
