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.

Southampton information

Southampton has long been established as one of the UK’s foremost ports. Whilst today’s docks may be best known for departing cruise liners, the city has played a major part in maritime and history.

Southampton was the city that first saw the departure of the Mayflower in 1620 and, in 1912, Southampton was the starting point for the RMS Titanic on its maiden voyage.

Nestled between two rivers, the Test and Itchen, Southampton benefits from a double high tide which is created by both rivers, making the movement of large ships an easier feat. This feature is what has made Southampton a key port for some of the world’s most established cruise operators. This led to the beautiful Ocean Village being created in 1986 and since, then it has played host to The Global Challenge yacht race in 1992, 1996 and 2000 and is the home of The Southampton Yacht Club.

The Southampton boat show is also held annually in the city and is a key event in the maritime calendar.

But there is more to Southampton that just its port. For starters, the city has a proud sporting culture, with Southampton Football Club playing at the St Mary’s Stadium. The Rose Bowl, home to Hampshire Cricket Club, also hosts regular international cricket.

As it sits on the southern coast of the UK Southampton benefits from the oceanic climate, but due to its low lying location, has some of the warmest sunniest weather in the UK, and has held the record for the warmest June in the UK since 1976.

Southampton, which gained city status in 1964, has many claims to fame including the oldest bowling green in the world, which dates back to before 1299 and it is still in use. Every August a unique competition takes place there for the Knighthood of the Old Green, the winner being entitled to be called ‘Sir’ within the club.

The writer Jane Austen and members of her family lived in Southampton between 1806 and 1809 and a new Jane Austen Trail is linked to a series of plaques in the Old Town tracing her associations with Southampton
