UK Outlook for Sunday 5 Oct 2014 to Tuesday 14 Oct 2014:

During the weekend and into the following week most places will be generally unsettled with showers or longer spells of rain, which are likely to be heavy at times, mainly across western and northern parts. There is also likely to be some drier and brighter interludes in between. Breezy at times, with a risk of gales in the north and west. Temperatures generally on the cool side, especially in the wet and windy spells. There will be a risk of local frost and fog patches developing where clear skies prevail and winds fall light during the nights, particularly across northern parts. Thereafter the unsettled conditions are likely to continue across most areas. However, it is possible that later in the period eastern and southeastern may become increasingly drier and brighter.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 15 Oct 2014 to Wednesday 29 Oct 2014:

Current indications now suggest that generally unsettled conditions are likely to affect many areas of the UK during this period, with spells of wet and windy weather. However these are likely to be interspersed with drier and clearer interludes, which will also bring an increasing risk of overnight frosts and fog patches, especially across northern parts. Daytime temperatures generally close to the seasonal average.

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.
