Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 2 Aug 2014 to Monday 11 Aug 2014:

Changeable this weekend with showers and or more prolonged periods of rain affecting most areas. On Saturday, rain, occasionally heavy and perhaps thundery, will clear away eastwards, with brighter conditions but also scattered showers then following. Further showers on Sunday with a chance of more persistent rain reaching some western areas later. The unsettled theme then continues into next week, conditions perhaps turning breezier then, with a risk of gales in some exposed western parts. The unsettled theme is likely to continue until the end of the period, although there may be more in the way of drier and brighter conditions developing across the south and east later. Temperatures should be generally near normal for the time of year, although perhaps on the warm side towards the south and east.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 12 Aug 2014 to Tuesday 26 Aug 2014:

With no particularly strong signals regarding weather patterns over the UK during mid-August, conditions are more likely than not to be close to climatology. As such most regions can expect to see periods of fine weather with some sunshine interspersed by occasional spells of more changeable conditions with showers or rain. Northern parts are perhaps most likely to see the most frequent bouts of unsettled weather leaving southern parts with the most prolonged fine spells. Daytime temperatures are then likely to often be above average during fine spells.

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.
